A partnership between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and The Kohala Center,
the Hawai‘i Island Vog Network provides near-real-time measurements of the two major components
of vog: sulfur dioxide and particulate matter. Data are collected using a new generation of relatively low-cost,
experimental air quality monitors capable of making high-density measurements. This network differs from
regulatory air quality networks that are composed of a relatively few number of high-performance, but
more expensive air quality stations. For more information on the project,
