In collaboration with the New York State Department of Environment Conservation (DEC) at Queens College, NY, low-cost air quality monitors were surveyed and assessed through field collocation and integrated into a cellular data acquisition system. This project explored the feasibility of using stationary low-cost monitoring networks for spatial and...

The study intended to explore the feasibility of using low-cost instrumentation (AirBeam2) to create a more accessible platform for measuring air quality. The monitors were calibrated by the manufacture itself and this study validated them through field colocation against a FEM instrument. The minimum and maximum R2 values obtained were 0.79 and 0....

Recent studies have demonstrated that mobile sampling can improve the spatial granularity of land use regression (LUR) models. Mobile sampling campaigns deploying low-cost (<$300) air quality sensors could potentially offer an inexpensive and practical approach to measure and model air pollution concentration levels. In this study, we developed LUR...

... Students learned how to use the AirBeam2 monitor, which is a wearable air monitor that measures PM 1 , PM 2.5 , PM 10 , temperature, and humidity, and maps, graphs, and crowd source pollution exposures in real time via the AirCasting Android app and AirCasting website. A similar case study using this air monitor has been described in detail in Ilie et al. (2021). With a focus on the most important locations, five different fixed sites (stationary network) with many internal locations were identified for air quality monitors (AQMs) using Airbeam2. ...
... Studies employing Big Data analytics and machine learning methods for air quality prediction and management are also abound. For instance, random forest and stacked ensemble have been used in a study focused on mapping urban air quality using mobile sampling in Seoul, South Korea (Lim et al., 2019). Some sectors such as transport have received more attention as can be seen from Fig. 5.1. ...
