Jennifer Gabrys spoke at a CDI meeting last October and has sent along some new information from the Citizen Sense project. Here is Jennifer's message:


Dear all,


We are pleased to announce the launch of research materials from the ‘pollution sensing’ phase of the Citizen Sense project. Working with residents in northeastern Pennsylvania concerned about the effects of fracking on air pollution, we have found that citizens’ digital monitoring shows evidence of air pollution at some locations near fracking sites.


You can find the data stories describing some of the findings at:



You can find the citizen-gathered data, along with our Airsift data analysis toolkit, videos and resources for undertaking your own monitoring at:



The Goldsmiths press release outlining findings from the pollution sensing research is available at:



Please feel free to share these materials widely.


Kind regards,


Jennifer (and Helen)
