New Practice for Performance Evaluation of Ambient Air Quality Sensors and Other Sensor-Based Instruments

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge, the development of test methods, practices, guides, and terminology pertaining to sampling and analysis of atmospheres, interpretation of data, the standardization of recognized and practiced methods for measurement of atmospheric quality, and sponsoring of discussions among those active in the study of air quality.
The work of the Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having mutual interest.

Keywords

ambient air quality; sensors; airborne pollutants; PM2.5; PM10; SO2; NO2; O3; CO

Rationale

Community based and relatively inexpensive sensors are gaining in use by the public, schools, and ambient air-monitoring organizations. These sensors are currently entering the market with limited information as to their repeatability, sensitivity, linearity, cross interferences, temperature impacts, drift, and measurement uncertainty as compared with the more costly instruments typically used by entities such as government agencies. This standard is intended to address this critical need.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
