Outdoor Air Quality Monitoring Coming Soon

IMG_6917Air quality is something we offen take for granted in Canada but our world is becoming more and more polluted. To help monitor air quality I’m added a air quality monitor to my weather station. I live in a valley on the prairies which often has air settling in and getting locked in as winds blow over and trap the air. So I’m curious what the air quality is like. What here for more details.

Talking about air quality, indoor air quality is also something to be concerned about. Radeon gases trapped in houses is a something that needs more attention. At my place in Didsbury I’ve seen numbers as high of 385Bq/m3 in my living area, basement would be even higher. World Health Organization recommends that levels should be max 100Bq/m3. Canada Health Organization max is 200Bq/m3. Air quality is something we need to look at more to improve the health of our communities.
