Thames network to monitor air pollution from cruise ships

A new network of air pollution monitors has been installed to record emissions from cruise ships docking in Greenwich. The £80,000 network has been funded by the Port of London Authority (PLA) and installed in partnership with Breathe London and the borough councils covering both Greenwich and Tower Hamlets. The eight monitoring stations, all located …

New modular options for AQMesh air quality monitoring systems

The AQMesh small sensor air quality monitoring system already offers flexibility of monitoring location – through independent power and communications – as well as high data quality and traceability. Now the platform is even more flexible ..

How clean is your local air?

Few people know how clean the air is where they live, work, exercise or where their children go to school. Although air quality can be shown to vary significantly over short distances, air pollution is generally measured using a small number of large, expensive and high quality monitoring stations. The equipment used in these stations …

AQMesh used in smart cities to share air quality data with the public

In an inter-connected world, air quality is increasingly becoming another measurement made available to the public, but how reliable is the data? Common air pollutants such as NO2 and PM2.5 mix at different rates depending on their source and local weather conditions, particularly wind speed, leaving large local variations in pollution levels. Urban air quality …

AQMesh measures influence of cruise ship emissions on local air quality

AQMesh has been used in a project at the Port of Kiel, Germany, to measure emissions of nitrous oxides (NOx) and fine particulate matter (PM) around its cruise ship terminal.

Latest AQMesh co-location studies show capability of small sensor systems

Recent co-location comparison trials against certified reference equipment continue to prove AQMesh performance and reliability for localised air quality monitoring. Trials in the USA, UK and Western Europe this year have delivered high correlation coefficients ..

Urban Observatory monitors Newcastle with new generation of environmental sensors

The UK’s first Urban Observatory, led by Newcastle University, has been designed to provide a digital view of how cities work. AQMesh air quality monitoring equipment is being deployed across Newcastle and Gateshead ..

AQMesh shows high accuracy local ozone readings across global locations

AQMesh has been measuring ozone (O3) using small sensors since 2011 and the readings from the latest generation electrochemical sensor, using AQMesh v4.2.3 processing, as compared to co-located certified reference readings, consistently show an R2 of over 0.9 with an accuracy ±10ppb (20µg/m3).

Car-free Cardiff achieves 69% air quality improvement

On Sunday 13th May 2018, Cardiff Council organised a car-free day in the city’s central area. As a result of this event air quality monitoring data showed an average 69% drop in nitrogen dioxide (NO2) – one of the pollutants of greatest public health concern. Seeking a better understanding of the relationship between air quality …
