"The Las Vegas Airborne Pollen Monitoring Program"
Air quality is an important component of public health, and airborne pollen is a health concern for many residents in Clark County. Seasonal and climatic conditions can result in airborne concentrations of pollen that are unhealthy, particularly for sensitive individuals. Regular monitoring and reporting of airborne pollen concentrations is useful in assisting Clark County residents prepare for or avoid exposure. In 2013, the Clark County School District (CCSD) and the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) established the Pollen Monitoring Program. Samples are collected at six monitoring sites and analyzed daily. The objectives of this program are to serve the community by reporting local pollen and mold spore concentrations, conduct research on airborne pollen and mold in Las Vegas, and to provide educational opportunities for CCSD students and faculty.
The virtual presentation will be presented via Zoom.
