Researchers at the University of Calgary are exploring the impact of residential proximity to fracking and child health. Fracking has opened up new opportunities for oil and gas extraction in multiple geographic regions around the world; however, controversies over the health impacts of this process remain.

Children may be especially susceptible to the impact of fracking compared to adults as they tend to spend more time outdoors, breathe faster, and exposures that occur during critical stages of development may have long lasting impacts.

Children in this study are using Atmotube to capture their exposure to air pollutants over a one week period. Children will also undergo a structured assessment evaluating their cognitive and academic functioning, adaptive behaviour, and social-emotional functioning.

Atmotubes are being used to monitor air quality in Madison Park Community in Santa Ana, CA. The ongoing project is led by Madison Park Community Association and funded by California Air Resources Board to increase awareness of environmental justice concerns in the area. Researchers aim to identify if the air pollution problem is mainly caused by industrial sources or traffic. Another goal is to determine how socioeconomic factors are connected with air quality. By April 12, 2021, the residents of the community have already collected 4000-min worth of data.

Atmotube was a part of the research focusing on the smoke detector performance of air quality sensors using combustion products from spacecraft materials. The research goal was to optimize fire detection with low-cost air quality sensors. Our device responded well to all fire emission tests and showed a high correlation with the PID measurements. The joint study was conducted by the researchers from Desert Research Institute, the University of Nevada, Reno, and NASA Glenn Research Center.

Research group at UCI Health used Atmotube PRO from July-September in 2020 to examine their personal PM2.5 and VOC exposures during the beginning of the COVID-19 re-opening stages and California wildfires. The focus of the pilot study was to evaluate personal exposure differences based on volunteers' housing, and time-activities, i.e., smoking, cooking, cleaning, indoor ventilation system change, and mobility (driving, biking, walking).
Spatial and temporal changes were reflected in the sensor measurements for each individual. Further, Sensors were also able to capture extreme elevation in both PM2.5 and VOC levels during the wildfire episode.
