This dataset contains NH3 air quality data measurements taken in from Mukuru in Nairobi using passive samplers. This data was taken as part of the NERC funded project Taking forward the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) resolution: Pilot to determine the air quality drivers for Sub-Saharan Africa (NE/P008453/1).

This pilot project, AQD-Nairobi, was designed to integrate low and high temporal resolution low-cost air quality (AQ) measurements to determine AQ drivers in Nairobi and be an exemplar scientific study for sub-Saharan Africa.
