Haze Monitoring Citizen Science project

Yet Another Haze Index (Yahi) is a project started by Roland Turner using very low cost DIY sensors to collect and map haze in Singapore. The project aims are:

  • To measure haze intensity on a minute-by-minute basis to help short-term decision making about strenuous outdoor activity

  • To visualize the propagation of haze across Singapore.

He is currently looking for volunteers to buy a sensing station and contribute data by installing it on a balcony or a roof. If you're interested, particularly if you'd like to do host a sensor in a part of the map that currently has no coverage, please see the mapping pilot page and contact Roland.
