BREATH PROJECT / CLEAN AIR DASH 2013

 

Breathemobile is a traveling laboratory designed to map and monitor air quality throughout the Pittsburgh region and to increase public awareness of the harmful impacts of air pollution. It was developed by Carnegie Mellon University in 2013 through a grant from The Heinz Endowments.

The van is equipped with both traditional scientific instrumentation for monitoring air pollutants, such as ozone and fine particle black carbon, and new measurement techniques, such as portable air quality monitors. The outreach lab also contains large screens for presenting air quality data so the public can actually see and understand air pollution in the Pittsburgh region.
