新传感器布设位置

过去几周时间,我们新布置了3个传感器,一个位于朝阳区麦子店街,一个位于海淀区香山脚下植物研究所,一个位于一号线苹果园地铁站附近居民区。

 

这3个传感器分别位于北京城区的东边、西边和西北,监测典型下垫面(楼房、公园植被)的CO2浓度,与之前大气物理研究所40号楼顶的传感器相呼应,监测不同下垫面和不同高度的CO2变化情况。

 

Planning meeting for the mini-SENSE network

On Wednesday, a planning meeting for the Baltimore-Washington experimental mini-network (mini-SENSE) was held. Representatives from several universities, K-12 schools, NASA and NOAA, as well as members of our team met to discuss strategies for the deployment of ~20 sensor packages in the region in the next 1-2 months. We also discussed how schools and individuals can help out by hosting one of our sensor packages at little or no cost to them.  In exchange, we also discussed possible outreach and lesson plan ideas as STEM education resources for partner schools.

First Site at Beltsville

Just this past Thursday, we deployed our first prototype sensor package in the field at the Howard University – Beltsville research site in Beltsville, MD.  Unfortunately, due to a communications issue we don’t yet have any data but hope to have this resolved soon.  This location is home to air quality research instruments owned by Howard University as well as the Maryland Dept. of the Environment.
