The Mobile ObserVations of Ultrafine Particles (MOV-UP) study was a two-year project funded by the State of Washington to study air quality impacts of air traffic for communities located near and below the flight paths of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The University of Washington research team that led the study coordinated with local governments and solicited feedback from community members. A study advisory group made up of representatives from government agencies, cities and community organizations advised the study design and methods.
