The Museum of the Albemarle will host a 2nd History for Lunch on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at 12 p.m. in the Gaither Auditorium.
Colleen Karl with the Edenton-Chowan Environmental Group will discuss the purple air sensors that capture any increase in air particles that may be released from Cyanobacteria blooms.
The sensors are installed across Northeast North Carolina, with one being at the Museum of the Albemarle.
Sensors are designed to measure small particles and convert them to a usable index of air quality. The data is recorded in real-time and continuously updated on a map. Learn about air quality as it relates to water quality.
The project is made possible by the Community Collaborative Research Grant Program, supported by North Carolina Sea Grant and the state’s Water Resources Research Institute, in partnership with the William R. Kenan Jr. Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science based at North Carolina State University.
The Museum will offer History for Lunch in-person and through Zoom. Register in advance through the Museum’s Facebook page or MuseumOfTheAlbemarle.com to receive a link to attend the lecture virtually.
The virtual program is supported by Friends of the Museum of the Albemarle.
