UC-Berkeley Chemists Installing First Carbon Dioxide Sensor Network in Oakland
June 27, 2012
Using inexpensive detectors that fit inside a shoebox, University of California, Berkeley, chemists are installing a network of sensors--the nation's first--in Oakland, Calif., to allow neighborhood-by-neighborhood, real-time monitoring of carbon dioxide and other pollutants. The information will help communities monitor greenhouse gases and help verify local caps on emissions.
