Smartphone Air Quality Checks for Everyday Use

The severe fires and air pollution problems in the last year have triggered a higher use of apps that allow people to get real-time updates of the air quality and potential risk in the area. But that can be effective even without raging fires. Before the fires, the air was still considered extremely unhealthy in many areas.

UCLA Anderson’s Magali Delmas and Aanchal Kohli of UCLA’s Institute of the Environment & Sustainability published papers that explore the potential of integrating air quality checks into people’s everyday lives. They studied how smartphone apps can prompt people about the quality of the air locally in order to alter their behavior.
