Vaisala sensor technology - the resolution for clean air

Air Quality - Let's make our cities breathable

Poor air quality is the most serious environmental health issue globally and the primary driving force for ambient air quality monitoring. Currently available reference-grade air quality monitoring stations provide accurate data, but the networks are sparse. New technologies make it possible to complement the existing measurements with compact air quality sensors.
