School children’s personal exposure to ultrafine particles in urban environments
Mazaheri, Mandana, Mohktar, Megat, Jayaratne, Rohan, & Morawska, Lidia (2012) School children’s personal exposure to ultrafine particles in urban environments. In European Aerosol Conference 2012, 2-7 September 2012, Parque de las Ciencias, Granada, Spain.
This work was motivated by the limited knowledge on personal exposure to ultrafine (UF) particles, and it quantifies school children’s personal exposure to UF particles, in terms of number, using Philips Aerasense Nano Tracers (NTs). This study is being conducted in conjunction with the “Ultrafine Particles from Traffic Emissions and Children’s Health (UPTECH)” project, which aims to determine the relationship between exposure to traffic related UF particles and children’s health (http://www.ilaqh.qut.edu.au/Misc/UPTECH%20 Home.htm). To achieve this, air quality and some health data are being collected at 25 schools within the Brisbane Metropolitan Area in Australia over two years. The school children’s personal exposure to UF particles in the first 17 schools are presented here. These schools were tested between Oct 2010 and Dec 2011. Data collection is expected to be complete by mid 2012.
