How Our Monitors Function
An CAMN consists of a network of air monitors/sensors that are installed at residents, school buildings or other sites within the selected communities throughout the county or state. The monitors continuously measure levels of specific air pollutants and send that information over the internet to a server, where the data are stored in a database. The data then undergo various quality control measures and calculations before being displayed on a website or downloaded in datasets. Data from community monitors will be compared with those operated and managed by local government agencies and industrial facilities.
