Special Report 23
Health Effects Institute
2022

This comprehensive scientific review examines the evidence for associations between several adverse health effects and traffic-related air pollution (TRAP). The review, the largest of its type to date, was conducted by a panel of 13 renowned experts who evaluated 353 published scientific reports on traffic pollution and related health effects between 1980 and 2019.

New detailed review finds strong links between adverse health effects and traffic pollution

June 16, 2022

A comprehensive new scientific review released today finds growing confidence in the links between several adverse health effects and traffic-related air pollution (TRAP). The review, the largest of its type to date, was conducted by a panel of thirteen renowned experts who evaluated 353 scientific reports published between 1980 and 2019 on traffic pollution and related health effects.

HEI hosts virtual workshop on non-tailpipe particulate matter emissions and exposure

December 2, 2020

HEI held a virtual scientific workshop on the emissions, air quality, and exposure impacts of non-tailpipe particulate emissions from on-road vehicular traffic. Over two days of interactive sessions, participants discussed achievements and knowledge gaps in non-tailpipe emissions characterization, exposure assessment, and assessment of potential health risks.

Study compares statistical models for use in exposure assessment

March 23, 2020

HEI has published Research Report 202Enhancing Models and Measurements of Traffic-Related Air Pollutants for Health Studies Using Dispersion Modeling and Bayesian Data Fusion, which describes a study led by Dr. Stuart Batterman at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and colleagues. The investigators evaluated the ability to predict traffic-related air pollution using a variety of methods and models, including a line source air pollution dispersion model and sophisticated spatiotemporal Bayesian data fusion methods.
