Comments Off on Researchers use smart phones to track city pollution levels

It fluctuates throughout the day, depending on time and location, meaning that the health risks associated with air pollution can increase depending on how high the local pollution levels are. Luckily, scientists publishing their research in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology have found a way to use smart phone and sensor technology to monitor where pollution is peaking. The researchers noted that it’s important to remember that pollution can vary greatly between school and work environments, or by time of day—for instance, rush hour.
