Air Quality

Dear Colleague,

In this issue of Trends, we provide several articles on air quality.

Our first article explores the use of low-cost sensors to monitor air quality across the United States.  The second article outlines a more methodical approach to addressing common odor-related challenges.  The third article touches on indoor air quality and the various ways in which people affect it.  Our fourth article discusses the impact of wildfires on the air quality of the Sonoma and Napa regions of California and their surrounding wineries.

Gradient contributors to this Trends issue include Nima Afshar-Mohajer, Ph.D., CIH; Christopher G. DesAutels, M.S.; and Amy I. H. Hrdina, Ph.D.

We hope this issue of Trends familiarizes you with the topic of air quality monitoring and its many applications to different areas of life.

Yours truly,

Chris Long, Sc.D., DABT, and Kurt Herman, M.Eng., P.G.
