  • Finer particles give more useful air quality data, says new research

    New air quality research indicates that measuring ultra-fine particles can distinguish between particles generated through human activities, such as combustion, and larger particles, which are more likely to arise from mechanical processes and natural sources. The smallest air particles are from combustion sources such as vehicles and power plants, and easily enter the body. However, air quality ...

  • Cyclists map Antwerp air pollution with on-bike monitors

    Cyclists with pollution monitors and GPS trackers attached to their bicycles have produced detailed maps of Antwerp’s air quality, as part of a recent study. Their data show that a gap of just a few metres between cycle lanes and cars significantly reduces cyclists’ risk of inhaling high levels of ultrafine particle pollution. Personal ‘mobile monitoring’ is attracting ...
