Abstract

Our project goal was to recommend ways to satisfy public interest and reduce knowledge gaps about air quality in Zürich, Switzerland. To accomplish this, we measured air quality and surveyed the general public. We determined average present air quality in Zürich to be below Swiss federal limits and residents to be concerned but not well informed about actual air quality. To address this, we recommend that smartphone weather applications be expanded to include user-friendly ways to access air quality data.
