Development and validation of an outdoor low-cost smoke monitor
Wildfires and prescribed fires produce emissions that are harmful to human health. These health effects, however, are difficult to quantify, likely in part due to sparse data on exposure. The ability to measure fire emissions as they reach sensitive areas is critical to ensuring the protection of public health. Ground level quantification of smoke from wildfires and prescribed fires has proven to be a difficult task. The state of the art for monitoring outdoor air quality has long relied upon expensive, cumbersome equipment that generally requires line power. Few ground-based measurements are ...
