Community Air Quality Monitoring with Trevor Durning

Community Ag Project by Emily Davis

Episode notes

Welcome back to the Community Agriculture Project. Today I talked with Trevor, a student researcher studying Sustainable Development and Environmental Chemistry at Columbia University. In this episode, we discuss Trevor’s initial inspiration for setting up air quality testing equipment in his community, the theory of purple air sensors and how they are implemented for environmental testing, the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) HYSPLIT models, and the relation of this data collection with community agency and community advocacy.

Below are the resources from Trevor that we mentioned throughout the episode:
