Unpublished report

This unpublished report describes a one-year study aimed at evaluating low-cost sensors in a dense network of near-road monitoring sites in the San Francisco Bay area. The overarching goal was to evaluate the ability of low-cost sensors to characterize traffic-related air pollution. The specific aims were to (1) colocate and compare low-cost sensors with regulatory instruments and (2) evaluate the ability of the low-cost sensors to characterize variations in traffic-related air pollution that are associated with different traffic counts. The topic of the study is of interest since the development and use of low-cost air pollution sensors are progressing rapidly, and these sensors have the potential to transform the way air pollution research is conducted.

Research Report 196, Developing Multipollutant Exposure Indicators of Traffic Pollution: The Dorm Room Inhalation to Vehicle Emissions (DRIVE) Study, describes a study by Dr. Jeremy A. Sarnat that evaluated single- and multipollutant metrics of exposure to traffic-related air pollutants near and farther away from a major highway in Atlanta, as well as biological markers in a panel of students.
