Monitoring air pollution after Hurricane Maria

This post was originally published on this site

When Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico on Sept. 20, 2017, the storm devastated the island’s electrical grid, leaving many people without power for months. This lack of electricity, as well as other storm-related damage, prevented air-quality monitoring in many areas. Now researchers have shown that low-cost sensors that run on solar energy can be used to monitor air pollution after a disaster.
