Around the World in 80 Air Quality Monitors

In the book “Around the World in 80 days”, the protagonist Phileas Fogg of London UK and his French valet Passepartout attempt to circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a £20,000 wager (roughly £2 million today). Inspired by Phileas and Passepartout’s global travels, join us as we take a world tour through the lens of air quality monitoring.

Guided by the Local Haze air quality monitoring app, we are taking a worldwide tour highlighting 80 AQI sensors around the globe, and learning how citizen scientists and air quality enthusiasts are monitoring their local air quality.

For stop #3 on our world tour, we travel to the city of Dakar, Senegal and check out the PurpleAir sensor located at the edge of the ocean #ATW80AQ
