Short summary
Emerging lower cost and miniaturized sensors have potential to increase spatial and temporal information on air pollution. To evaluate these technologies, air quality sensor devices were collocated with regulatory-grade instruments in a suburban outdoor setting in the southeastern United States. Additionally, a multi-node sensor network, with several nodes solar-powered and wirelessly transmitting data, was established to test the feasibility of high density, continuous air monitoring.
