WeatherDuino Air Quality Monitor
The air we breathe is very important, but what is in it and how polluted is it? Thanks to the WeatherDuino Air Quality Monitor, Palmy Weather is pleased to be using this hardware to monitor the air condition at our location, a short distance from the City Centre of Palmerston North.

This system gathers data on Dust Density Particle Matter (PM2.5 and PM10), CO2 information and also calculates the Air Quality Index (AQI) based upon this information. Our units of measure include PPM (Parts Per Million) and ug/m3 (micrograms [one-millionth of a gram] per cubic meter air). Graphs are updated once every 10 minutes.


 AQI: 65   Moderate   
Dust PM2.5: 19.00ug/m3 | Dust PM10: 0.80ug/m3 | CO2: 383

Air quality is acceptable; a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution may have moderate health concerns
