Environmental Chemistry: Measurement of Air Pollution at Regional Hot Spots

Posted 2 years ago by Dan Jaffe

School(s) : STEM
Primary PI Name : Dan Jaffe
Email : djaffe@uw.edu
Phone : 425-352-5357
Project/Faculty Website : http://blogs.uw.edu/djaffe
Research Location : UW Bothell
Project Goals : Air pollution is not uniformly distributed. Major industrial projects are often proposed with little regard for people living nearby. Recently, major increases in coal shipments were proposed in Washington with little knowledge about the impact on residents living near rail lines. Our group has become a resource in the region to understand and document local hot spots of air pollution.
Student Responsibilities : -Test low-cost sensors against the standard (and expensive) methods. -Deploy these low-cost sensors at key field sites around the Puget Sound region. -Interpret the data for individuals and local community groups.
