(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Oct 01, 2020]
For any single project, air sensor performance is typically evaluated at a single site or within a single region over a short time period (weeks to months). However, sensor performance often depends on environmental conditions, pollutant concentrations, and particle properties. I...
Uncertainty in collocated mobile measurements of air quality
(JOURNAL) [Published : Oct 01, 2020]
Mobile mapping of air pollution has the potential to provide pollutant concentration data at unprecedented spatial scales. Characterizing instrument performance in the mobile context is challenging, but necessary to analyze and interpret the resulting data. We used robust stati...
