QREST Successfully Launched
QREST, the first national tribal open source air monitoring network successfully launched by integrating with data loggers in March 2020. Tribal members can now use QREST to automatically retrieve air monitoring results from their data loggers, and send the data to both EPA’s AirNow and AQS. In addition, members can fully review their data prior to submission, including the tracking of quality control (QC) data. QREST also comes with a public website which allows tribal citizens, and citizen-scientist full access to not only reviewed hourly data, but raw n-minute data, including graphical and map based displays.
