The University of Washington Department of Environmental Health has a laboratory facility dedicated to research on Optical Remote Sensing (ORS) of environmental contaminants. This laboratory is directed by Professor Michael Yost. The lab is located at 668 Northlake Way NE, a few blocks from the UW main campus. The building facilities include offices and a large wind tunnel for indoor testing of ORS instruments. Current research is directed to measuring gases with infrared light spectroscopy using Open Path FTIR (OP-FTIR) and to measuring aerosols with LIDAR. We also are developing mathematical algorithms for interpreting ORS data by applying Computed Tomography and other inversion methods to produce spatially resolved maps of contaminants in workplaces and to locate outdoor pollution emission sources.
