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
Current pollution meters don’t count the very smallest pollutants – nanoparticles. Recent research suggests these tiny toxic substances could be a major cause of illness and death. By Tim Smedley 15th November 2019 A After years of headlines about air pollution, we’ve been misled on a few things about the world’s biggest environmental health problem.
Jet engine exhaust is a significant source of ultrafine particles and aviation-related emissions can adversely impact air quality over large areas surrounding airports. We investigated outdoor and indoor ultrafine particle number concentrations (PNC) from 16 residences located in two study areas in the greater Boston metropolitan area (MA, USA) for evidence of aviation-related impacts. During
“$125,000 of the general fund—state appropriation for fiscal year 2018 and $125,000 of the general fund—state appropriation for fiscal year 2019 are provided solely for the University of Washington school of public health to study the air quality implications of air traffic at the international airport in the state that has the highest total annual
