Atmospheric chemists at NCAR wondered if satellites would work to measure, track, and then forecast air pollution, which doesn't typically obey local or national boundaries. But they didn't just wonder. They figured out how a low-cost method using sensors on high-orbit satellites could be used to monitor and forecast global and regional air quality. Here's how they did it: http://www2.ucar.edu/atmosnews/just-published/17531/tracking-air-quality-high-sky

Print it, use it, break it—print it again: UCAR technologists have developed a prototype low-cost weather station for developing nations that can't afford expensive observing systems. The ingredients? A 3D printer, off-the-shelf sensors, and a cheap, credit card-sized computer. Check it out
