Crowd-sourcing data to measure nitrogen dioxide levels in Bengaluru’s air Clean Air Platform, in collaboration with Sensing Local, is launching an ambitious programme to involve the citizens of Bengaluru in an exercise to measure the levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) at various locations across the city. Using simple and relatively cheap equipment, participants in the.
#WhatAreYouBreathing Curious about the quality of the air you breathe? Do you want to know the levels of pollutants in your place of residence, work and exercise or where your children study? Clean Air Platform is piloting a unique exercise – community-based air quality monitoring, as part of a campaign to help the citizens of.
Real-time, hyperlocal mapping of air pollution covering arterial roads, residential zones and other areas of pollution vulnerability. In the city of Bengaluru, we have 10 real-time regulatory grade monitors, which tell us the ambient air quality of the city. The pollution levels we get from these is very different from the actual levels of exposure.
Assess actual exposure to pollutants of vulnerable populations like those with health conditions, or exposure due to occupation and lifestyle in the city The heterogeneous nature of pollution sources in a typical Indian city warrants more local monitoring for accurate estimates of what people are exposed to. Individual exposure depends on the level of pollutants.
Increase coverage of fixed air quality monitors to develop a spatially representative network in Bengaluru Currently, under the NAMP and Continuous Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Stations (CAAQMS) programmes, Bengaluru has 23 stations; of these, 13 are manual stations and 10 are continuous stations. The National Air Quality Monitoring Programme (NAMP) is a national network of.
