We’ve built 250 weather and air quality stations for the Baltimore area. The stations measure temperature, relative humidity, ozone, and nitrogen dioxide- we call them WeatherCubes. They are stationed throughout the Baltimore area and send information in near-real time.
The boxes were designed by Dr. Yan Azdoud and Chris Kelly and built by Baltimoreans, with help from the non-profit and Baltimore Open Air Partner, CivicWorks.
Our WeatherCubes meausure temperature, humidity, ozone, and nitrogen dioxide, using calibrated sensors. They post their results to the web once per day via wifi.
Soon, individuals and families can use the WeatherCube's data to make informed decisions about pollutant exposures and their health.
