Do you want an air pollution monitor?

March 2019

A new group called Clean Air for Sheffield, in collaboration with Univesity of Sheffield are installing air pollution monitors (measuring particulate matter) across Sheffield - these link up to a citizen science project called luftdaten.

So far there are about 20 monitors installed in Sheffield and some show up on the map (it takes a few weeks for them to register).

If you want to get a monitor for your house, workplace or other site, they cost £30 (by PayPal to Graham Turnbull and you need to power them (from a USB cable) and connect them to WiFi.

Graham will make it and bring it to you, making sure that it works. Or people can build it themselves (but it may involves more work and cause delay in getting data). A kit costs £40. The parts take 2-4 weeks to arrive from China.

Graham can be contacted via
