Air and Energy Webinar: Emerging Sensor Technologies 2014-2018 Progress Report


In recent years, EPA's Sensor Performance Evaluation and Application Research (SPEAR) initiative has conducted a variety of laboratory and field-based evaluations and deployments of air quality sensors and other Next Generation Air Monitors.  Since the program's first public State of the Science Webinar in 2014, EPA has made considerable progress in the area of air sensor research.

About the Webinar

An Air and Energy Research Program Webinar, Emerging Sensor Technologies 2014-2018 Progress Report, will summarize general findings across a broad base of air sensor research activities from 2014-2018. The first two hours of the webinar will be presentations by some of the SPEAR research team on such topics as sensor evaluations,  data analytics, ammonia detection, citizen science, and detection of select emission sources. The final portion of the webinar will be a question and answer period.

Two identical webinar sessions will be offered on April 30, 2018:

  • Session 1 | 8:30-11:30 am EDT
  • Session 2 | 1:30-4:30 pm EDT 

Each of the sessions will cover the same material.

About EPA's SPEAR initiative

EPA's SPEAR initiative includes the discovery, evaluation and application efforts associated with commercially-available low-cost sensor technologies, the introduction of EPA-developed technology platforms (e.g. Village Green, aerial monitoring platforms), and environmental research involving advanced technologies (e.g. DISCOVER-AQ; KORUS-AQ, ground and satellite-based ammonia detection).
