Operation Healthy Air Training Materials

INTRODUCTION TO OPERATION HEALTHY AIR

The way our cities are built can sometimes lead to increased temperature and compromised air quality. For example, the amount of dark “built” structures (e.g. pavement, roofs) vs amount of green (i.e. trees/nature) or blue (i.e. water) space are factors which contribute towards temperature and air quality.

Volunteers and community members involved in Operation Healthy Air can help map local habitats through air and temperature sensor to better predict hot and cool spots and identify polluted areas in the respective cities.

Introduction to the Operation Healthy Air community science program:

Operation Healthy Air needs community members to help collect data in four different ways:

  1. Support monitoring of outdoor air temperature
  2. Monitor home indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity
  3. Habitat mapping
  4. Support monitoring of ozone
