Mapping for Change Air Quality Monitoring Project

Volunteer residents participated in an estate wide survey of Nitrogen Dioxide monitoring

Diffusion tubes to measure NO2 were installed and activated on on 53 locations on resident’s balconies or roof terraces and 13 street or Podium level locations. The tubes were changed every month and the results can be viewed here:
