Call for Papers: Special Issue "Sensors for Air Quality Assessment"
Open Access Journal Atmosphere
Deadline for manuscript submission: January 31, 2019.
Low-cost sensor technologies are gaining increasing interest for monitoring of air quality, both in the outside air and indoors. Sensor technologies can provide comprehensive information concerning a wide range of pollutants with high spatial and temporal resolution. They thereby offer the basis for novel environmental information services, i.e. green routes through cities for bikers and joggers. However, the data quality and reliability of these sensors as well as systematic integration with fixed monitoring stations and modeling approaches remain challenging.
The Special Issue will cover a range of topics addressing modern sensor technologies, test, validation and calibration as well as practical applications including multisensor integration, uses for model validation, data fusion and data assimilation, but also for supporting environmental information services and citizen science goals. We target high quality papers on the latest technological developments as well as examples of field studies using low-cost air pollution sensors of various types and for numerous applications in ambient as well as indoor environments.
