Urban and indoor aerosols and health effects


Urban and indoor aerosols and health effects

Atmospheric aerosols in urban environment are considered as one of the most significant health hazard in our environment. Aerosol pollutants have several sources and most of them are concentrated in urban areas. As people spend most of their time indoors, the transport of outdoor pollutants indoors together with indoor sources are important in determining the exposure and potential health risks.

The urban and indoor aerosols and health effects group aims to study and understand the air quality in various environments. The work combines field studies together with different types of modeling activities. The main focus is in real-time and long-term measurements with special attention to ultrafine and nanometer sized particles.
