EPA's Air Sensor Toolbox for Citizen Scientists

Air Sensor Toolbox for Citizer Scientists

EPA’s Air Sensor Toolbox for Citizen Scientists provides information and guidance on new low-cost compact technologies for measuring air quality. Since citizens are interested in learning more about local air quality where they live, work and play, EPA scientists created the Toolbox to provide citizens resources to effectively collect, analyze, interpret, and communicate air quality data.
