Clean Air Frome

A network of air quality sensors in Frome, empowering the community to understand the impacts of the air we breathe and to take action.

What air quality are you measuring?

We measure air quality by capturing the levels of particulate matter. Particulates are produced by vehicle exhaust emissions, dust from vehicle brake linings and burning wood. The particulate matter is measured in 2.5 and 10.0 micron sizes. This is important as smaller particles cause significant health and environmental issues.
