Physicochemical identification of indoor and outdoor particulate matter - CB01014

Description
This project resulted from a call for proposals for projects to be funded by this Department and the Department of Health on the effects on health and exposure to air pollutants and damp in the home.

The project was intended to identify and investigate the persistance of indoor and outdoor airborne particulate matter. The contractor collected particles from homes to investigate spatial and temporal variations in PM10 concentration, size distribution and inorganic chemistry. A number of studies were undertaken to examine biopersistence in a series of biological fluids.
