Meet met je iPhone fijnstof voor in kaart brengen gezondheidsrisico’s

Bron: @iSPEXnl / Steeds meer mensen dragen een hightech mobiele telefoon met camera, internetverbinding, GPS en veel rekenkracht bij zich. Het iSPEX-opzetstukje met bijbehorende app verandert jouw iPhone in een handomdraai in een wetenschappelijk instrument om stof in onze atmosfeer te meten. Richt je telefoon met iSPEX erop naar een helder stuk hemel en maak een foto. Jouw metingen, en die van 10.000 andere Nederlanders worden centraal verwerkt tot een fijnstof-kaart van Nederland, waarmee je daadwerkelijk een steentje bijdraagt aan atmosferisch onderzoek. Al jouw meetgegevens zullen namelijk ingezet worden om de gezondheidsrisico’s van fijnstof beter in kaart te brengen, om vulkaanaswolken die het vliegverkeer verstoren te helpen identificeren, en om de onduidelijkheid over de invloed van fijnstof in het klimaatdebat te verkleinen.
Met iSPEX wordt een nieuwe meettechniek voor fijnstof geintroduceerd en proberen we met z’n allen te bepalen of er veel of weinig stof zit in de lucht. Maar ook hoe groot de deeltjes zijn en wat de samenstelling is. Geef je op voor de landelijke iSPEX Meetdag in mei of juni 2013!
