The Swetland Center for Environmental Health invites members of the Case Western Reserve University community to attend a seminar, “Increasing Our Understanding of PM2.5 Particulate Pollution Monitoring Through a Network of Low-Cost Air Quality Monitors,” on Tuesday, March 22, from 9 to 10 a.m.
The event will feature Kenneth Loparo, the Arthur L. Parker Professor in Case School of Engineering’s Department of Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering; and Nick Barendt, executive director of the Institute for Smart, Secure and Connected Systems (ISSACS); and Christina Yoka of the Cleveland Department of Public Health’s Division of Air Quality (CDAQ).
The presenters will discuss the impact of PM2.5 air pollution on human health and will share their experience of deploying and operating air quality monitors across Cuyahoga County to continuously monitor PM2.5 pollution throughout the region. They will also highlight the integrated data and visualization website built to begin examining the correlation between high PM2.5 pollution and COVID-19.
The work presented in this seminar is a collaboration between Case Western Reserve, DigitalC, Cleveland Division of Air Quality(CDAQ), Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, and the IoT Collaborative (IOTC).
