Best practices from Breathe London

Lessons learned from integrating hundreds of air quality sensors with the largest and most advanced regulatory monitoring network in Europe

The Breathe London Network launched in January 2021. Following a successful 2-year pilot, the Mayor of London took over the funding of the network, appointing Imperial College London to deliver the programme. The network integrates air quality measurements from hundreds of sensors with reference-grade measurements provided by London's regulatory air monitoring network — the largest and most advanced such network in Europe.

Over 350 air quality sensors will be installed in boroughs across London by the summer of 2022. Every Breathe London Node is co-located at reference sites and checked by researchers at Imperial College before deployment. Once deployed, the data is continually cross-checked against reference sites in real-time.

Aside from technological innovation, one of the most remarkable components of Breathe London is that it puts air quality monitoring into the hands of London’s communities. Thanks to support from Bloomberg Philanthropies, community groups can apply for fully-funded sensors in their neighborhoods — offering a new way to engage citizens with air quality.

The operators of this network — Imperial College London, the Greater London Authority, and Clarity — will share valuable information and real-world learnings about the use of air sensors at the city scale. Topics will include:

  • Distribution - who should own the sensors, and how should they be distributed to ensure equitable air monitoring coverage?
  • Siting and installation - how to select and prioritize monitoring sites? What indemnity provisions should be made, who is responsible for maintenance, and who is liable for making sure devices are properly installed?
  • QA/QC and calibration - how to ensure data accuracy?
  • Community engagement - how to use a sensor network to build relationships between community groups and local government?
  • Research applications - how has data from the network been used for case studies and research, and what other potential applications exist?

Community Air Sensor Use

Lead Session Chairs:

Ashley Collier-Oxandale, South Coast AQMD, Jan-Michael Archer, University of Maryland School of Public Health, & Gwendylon Smith, Community Health Aligning Revitalization Resilience & Sustainability (CHARRS), Jill Johnston, University of Southern California, Aubrey Burgess, City and County of Denver, Colorado

Community leadership in air quality research has increased rapidly in the last decade, in part facilitated by the emergence of low-cost sensor technologies. In this session, we will hear from community leaders and their partners about the interests, needs, and experiences of those participating in community-based air quality monitoring projects. The discussion will include building strong collaborations that maximize benefits to communities while minimizing extraction and improving the usefulness of sensors and related resources. Speakers may also address how to implement projects that produce data, which can be leveraged for positive policy outcomes and local action. 

Discussion topics may include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Examples of specific potential benefits to communities participating in these types of projects (e.g., capacity building, training, or access to equipment)
  • Examples of how groups have successfully leveraged data to inform positive policy outcomes and local action
  • Input from community members on what types of resources or support are not typically included in these projects but, if added, could enhance participation or project success
  • Examples of projects or collaborations discussing how the active participation of community members in the research (i.e., data collection, data analysis, and data interpretation) has increased the success of the project

Communication Strategies for Understanding, Insight, and Action

Lead Chairs:

Michael Ogletree, City & County of Denver, Dept. of Public Health & Environment, & Melissa Lunden, Aclima

The proliferation of individual sensors and sensor networks has led to an exciting, data-rich environment; however, communicating information supported by the data remains challenging. Effective communication often needs contributions from diverse talents in addition to air quality professionals (i.e. graphic designers, data and interface engineers, communication specialists) as well as the inclusion of contextual information (sources, meaningful locations, interpretive materials) to allow users to learn from the data without expert guidance. This session will feature discussions of any and all aspects that help communicate air quality information in a clear and comprehensible manner.

Filling in the air quality data gap and enabling air quality management in LMICs using low-cost sensors

Lead Session Chairs:

Amanda Kaufman, US EPA, R. Subramanian, QEERI & OSU-Efluve, & Rob Pinder, US EPA

Many low- and middle-income countries have little to no air quality monitoring due to the high cost of traditional monitoring equipment, which also impedes progress on air quality management and pollution exposure estimation in these countries. Low-cost sensors can help fill in the air quality data gap and empower local researchers and government officials to estimate population exposure and develop air quality management plans. We invite presentations on case studies and innovative solutions to combat air pollution using low-cost sensors.

Performance targets for air quality sensors

Lead Session Chairs:

Marine Van Poppel, VITO, Flemish Institute for Technological Research NV, & Rachelle Duvall, US EPA

Currently, there is not a uniform certification or standard that sets performance targets for air quality sensors. Moreover, performance needs will depend on the application of a sensor and evaluation approaches may vary for different applications. This session will highlight efforts to develop, compare and/or apply performance targets, performance parameters, and testing protocols or programs to understand sensor performance. It will also address scientific insights on performance parameters and how to deal with sensor performance over time. New insights in performance targets for air quality sensors are welcome!
