View highlights from the community kick-off meetings

The Fairbanks Winter Air Study research team Bill Simpson, Laura Conner, Nathan Kettle, and Krista Heeringa were joined by North Pole community members February 4th, and Fairbanks community members on February 6th to present planned research activities and listen to community concerns.  These events highlighted planned research that will kick off in the fall of 2020 with the citizen science that will be using purple air monitors to investigate questions related to indoor and outdoor air quality. This will be followed by the intensive chemistry field campaign that will be utilizing state of the art, real-time air measurements in and outside of a test house beginning in January 2021.   In addition to measuring indoor and outdoor pollution levels and chemical composition, a social science aspect of this survey will be distributed that will explore questions related to preferences related to different solutions, personal attachment, trust, perceived risk and uncertainty for winter air quality.
