Schools Monitoring Project Spring 2017

We monitored the pollution outside all of Camden’s schools from 24th February – 20th May 2017!

The aim of this study is to see just how bad the air is that our children breathe: the latest report from TfL/King’s College London suggests that at least 80% of Camden school children are breathing illegal air.

The results can be accessed here. RData.csv is the consolidated data in comma separated value format. The individual lab reports from each round are in excel format and Rplots.pdf  contains a simple graphical analysis of the data. We shall be publishing our take on the results soon.

We crowdfunded the first round of monitoring, which saw us install 97 diffusion tubes across the borough on the 24th and 25th of February. Rounds 2 and 3 were funded by Camden Council, comprising 100 diffusion tubes, giving us a whole quarter’s worth of data. Round 2 started on the 24th and 25th of March. Round 3 started on the  21st and 22nd of April and ended on the 19th and 20th of May.
