As the cost and complexity of developing and using air quality sensors has decreased, it has become more feasible for scientists working with media and civic groups to build and deploy networks of sensors in areas that currently aren’t well served by publicly funded research. This presentation will look at how Mongolian researchers have used DustDuino sensors to monitor particulate levels in Ulan Bataar, and similar initiatives around the world.
