Plantower Characterization and Use Bibliography 😁

Following are citations for articles and reports dealing with Plantower sensor uses and characteristics. There are a number of comparisons with optical particle counters as well as collocated FEM and FRM instrumentation. Several of them describe packaging alternatives to the PurpleAir, although none of these appear to have created the extensive data acquisition and dissemination infrastructure that supports the PurpleAir networks. :grin:
