Building on their successful guide, “Environmental Monitoring with Arduino: Building Simple Devices to Collect Data About the World Around Us” (http://goo.gl/M5HDT), Patrick & Emily are back again with “Atmospheric Monitoring With Arduino: Building Simple Devices to Collect Data About the Environment” (http://goo.gl/KNCem).
I’ve read both booklets, and there are some interesting projects. I learned to improve some of my existing projects as well as expand my weather station projects I have already built. If you have any interest in weather monitoring or air quality, I recommend these inexpensive booklets.
Atmospheric Monitoring With Arduino: “Detect harmful gases, dust particles such as smoke and smog, and upper atmospheric haze—substances and conditions that are often invisible to your senses. You’ll also discover how to use the scientific method to help you learn even more from your atmospheric tests.”
“Environmental Monitoring with Arduino” explains how to use the Arduino to detect or monitor various physical conditions in the environment around you. It is an inexpensive, short, focused, project-oriented book that has a variety of interesting projects, some of which you may find useful as a permanent device.”
