Characterization of Spatial and Temporal Variation of Ultrafine Particles in a Highway Tunnel.

Perkins, Jessica.

Abstract: Exposure to traffic–related air pollution has been linked to increased risks of cardiopulmonary disease, asthma, and reduced lung function. Ultrafine particles (UFP; aerodynamic diameter ≤100 nm) may contribute to these increased health risks. Previous tunnel studies have shown that UFP concentrations are highly elevated in poorly ventilated tunnels compared to open–air mixed roadways; h... read more
