Kestrel DROPs Used as Research Tool in Air Quality Study
Kestrel meters and data loggers are used in a variety of research programs and initiatives. When it comes to collecting data, accuracy is critical to maintaining research integrity. Kestrel environmental monitoring tools are preferred by researchers for their accuracy, reliability, and durability in the lab and in the field.
Kestrel DROP data loggers are currently being used by Oregon State University’s College of Public Health and Human Sciences to monitor air quality.
Master’s students are using the DROPs to monitor conditions as part of an Exposure Science course as well to collect environmental data for a community air quality study. The community-engaged air quality study involves placing the DROPS outdoors for several months to collect long-term temperature and RH data. Whether monitoring the air quality in a classroom setting or out in the community, Professor Diana Rohlman, PhD., says, "The ability to have a logger that can be used indoor and outdoor is very beneficial."
Researchers and educators trust the Kestrel line of environmental monitoring tools to give them the accuracy and reliability they need. Every Kestrel Weather & Environmental Meter manufactured at NK is calibrated against NIST-traceable standards and comes with a free Certificate of Conformity.
