The Chemical And Physical Nature Of Particulate Matter Affecting Air, Water And Soil Quality. (Ncr174)


This project will characterize the physical, chemical, biological and/or morphological properties of aggregated or disaggregated particulate matter and their environmental and health impacts over a wide range of spatio-temporal scales, including their potential effects on air quality. The project will focus on particulate matter derived from the production, use, and disposal of consumer products. Here, the release of particulate matter from consumer products, factors affecting such release, and the resulting exposures and environmental fate of such particles will be examined.
