Short summary
Formaldehyde is toxic to humans and is formed in the atmosphere in the presence of air pollution, but the measurements are sparse.

This study compared formaldehyde Pandora columns with the surface and aircraft-integrated columns near Seoul, South Korea. Relatively good agreement was observed between the three datasets with some overestimation by Pandora.
