What better way to become aware of your environment then to take an
active role in monitoring it? Very few sun photometers are in use
around the world. By allowing amateur scientists of all ages to
construct and use sun photometers such as the Visible Haze Sensor (otherwise known as the TERC
VHS-1 detector designed and created for Global Lab), a large amount of data can be collected. Compiling
and analyzing this data will provide valuable information to recognize
global trends in haze.
The Haze-SPAN web site hopes to accomplish this and more. This information will lead to a healthier environment in the future!
