Sheffield is working with OTT HydroMet to install low-power weather stations. It aims to monitor real-time local weather changes to better understand the factors affecting air quality. Each station includes a weather sensor, a carbon dioxide sensor, and a data logger. This installation is part of the University of Sheffield's Urban Flows Observatory program. The meteorological data will eventually help understand how infrastructure development influences air quality in the city. We think clients should monitor the progress of this project, as the data will be available to the public. Clients will be able to evaluate and use the data to help them build up models to predict air quality or set up their monitoring systems.
