Significant gaps exist in ozone monitoring infrastructure worldwide, which limits our ability to understand ozone pollution trends, exposures, and health impacts. Fortunately, reference-grade ozone monitors have become more affordable and portable in recent years, opening up a wide range of potential applications for ozone instrumentation. In this webinar, we will explore some of the applications of the FEM-capable Clarity Ozone Module — provided in partnership with 2B Technologies — for air quality research, modeling, and management.
Air quality researcher Owen Cooper (University of Colorado Boulder) — who leads the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) Tropospheric Ozone Assessment Report — will share how deploying additional ground-level ozone monitoring stations will improve our capacity to effectively assess surface ozone trends and quantify global human exposure to this harmful pollutant. Air quality management expert Gordon Pierce (CDPHE) will share how additional ozone monitoring locations would help to better characterize where high ozone levels are occurring and to provide for better forecasting and public information. He will highlight areas of particular interest such as unmonitored communities, the mountain foothills in Colorado’s North Front Range, and other areas where ozone has not previously been measured.

For over 20 years 2B Technologies has been dedicated to the development and commercialization of new, miniaturized analytical instruments for atmospheric and environmental measurements. Starting with its founding instrument, the Model 202 ozone monitor, 2B Tech has designed products that make air monitoring more accessible to non-regulatory entities. In 2009 2B Tech began involving students and the public in air monitoring through education and outreach programs, including the Global Ozone Project, GO3Treks, and AQTreks. These projects have allowed 2B Tech to dive deep into the intersection of regulatory and community-based monitoring, guiding the creation of our newest products geared toward public air monitoring.
