Event description

Description

Air quality monitoring has been historically left in the hands of local government agencies and the EPA. The size and cost of air quality monitoring systems have limited their number in any given area and enabled only regional and mostly delayed responses to air quality issues and their attendant health consequences. This talk will describe how one at risk Southern California community has joined with the South Coast Air Quality Management District to implement low cost air quality monitoring through a collaboration enabled by an EPA Science To Achieve Results (STAR) Grant. 30 web enabled low cost air quality monitors have been installed within a community of 10,000 seniors and are providing particulate matter measurements to inform their real time activities and help monitor nearby potential pollution sources such as adjacent freeway traffic and power generation plants.

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Travel by car to Marine Avenue in Redondo Beach CA. Look for the traffic light at Simon Ramo Drive. Turn south at this light into the Northrop Grumman campus. Navigate through the parking lots to find building S which has a letter 'S" high up near the roof. The meeting is in the basement cafeteria of building S, which necessitates you to go down a flight of steps to access the basement level. The Space Park Drive address given is technically correct but does not connect to the parking lot for building S.
