MeSH headings : Air Pollutants / analysis; Air Pollution / analysis; Environmental Monitoring; Georgia; Humans; Particulate Matter / analysis
TL;DR: The results show that the severe impact of PB on local air quality and public health may be missed due to the dearth of regulatory monitoring sites, and low-cost PM sensors can be used as a supplemental measurement tool and provide useful spatial and temporal information for integration with air quality model simulations.
