As threats to air quality rise, communities deploy low-cost air monitoring networks

Across the U.S., community air monitoring networks are growing in popularity as climate change increases the frequency and intensity of wildfires -- and dangerous smoke. These networks provide hyper-localized data that can fill gaps in federal and state monitoring efforts and alert communities to unhealthy air conditions.
