13-1 Improving Assessment of Near-Road Exposure to Traffic Related Pollution
RFA 13-1 solicits applications for studies to improve quantification of the relationship between on-road motor vehicle emissions, near-road pollutant concentrations, and human exposures for health studies. RFA 13-1 provides funding for 2- to 3- year studies. Winter 2013 RFA booklet
This study aims to improve estimates of concentrations of traffic-related air pollutants using source-oriented emission and dispersion models and Bayesian Melding, a novel data fusion technique that combines measured and modeled concentrations of traffic pollutants.
This study is evaluating novel multi-pollutant traffic surrogates by collecting measurements in and around two student dormitories in Atlanta and will explore the use of metabolomics to identify possible exposure-related metabolites.
