First commissioned sensors deployed
Saturday, 13 January 2018 4:00pm
End of last year before busy Christmas time we got three air quality monitors deployed. The locations of the monitors were identified by local residents in Heaton and deployed by good folks at Urban Observatory. Deployed monitors are capable of measuring nitrogen dioxide as well different size particles and also act as weather stations.
Collected data is available on Urban Observatory's portal:
- Warwick Street, junction with Stratford Road
- Chillingham Road, outside the primary school
- Chillingham Road, junction with Cartington Terrace
- Heaton Road, junction with Coast Road and Newton Road
We are also co-locating noise monitors alongside with air quality ones to find out whether there are any links with air pollution and noise pollution. As more data comes in, will be posting more information and links.
