UK Rooftop Device Measures Pollen
On the roof of the University of Kentucky Health Services building sits a device the shape and size of the propeller on a toy airplane. What it gathers each weekday from March until the end of October determines whether you have — or will get — a bad case of pollen-related sniffles. It is a measuring point, one of only a few in the state, for pollen and mold.
