Air Sensor Performance Testing Protocols, Metrics, and Target Values for PM2.5 and Ozone Webinar Archive
This webinar, recorded on March 24, 2021, featured ORD's Rachelle Duvall, Environmental Engineer, and Andrea Clements, Research Physical Scientist, presenting “Air Sensor Performance Testing Protocols, Metrics, and Target Values for PM2.5 and Ozone.” Lower cost air sensor technologies have flooded the marketplace and are being rapidly adopted by many to measure air quality conditions. It is commonly known that the data quality from these technologies is highly variable.
Consistent testing protocols and target values have not been available to uniformly evaluate and compare different air sensor technologies to better understand their performance in real-world conditions. This webinar highlights two reports developed by EPA that outline recommended performance testing protocols, metrics, and target values for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and ozone (O3) air sensors.
