Local Air Pollutant Dispersion

Home Page: 

Hypotheses: 

Thin streams of air pollution or "microplumes" near active sources lead to elevated exposure under common circumstances.

Investigators: 

Sandra McBride
Wayne R. Ott
Neil E. Klepeis
Paul Switzer

Aims: 

This project seeks to measure and model indoor and outdoor air pollution dispersion in close proximity to local point sources, including cigars, cigarettes, incense, candles, cooking, etc. Specific efforts make use of multi-point arrays of gas or particle sensors, as well as advanced statistical and deterministic modeling techniques.

Methods: 

Tracer Gas
Multipoint Sensor Array
Real-Time Monitoring
Mass-Flow Controller
