Title: Metals in Ambient Air: Refinement of Measurement Techniques
Author: Rasmussen, Pat
Abstract: This research will improve our ability to assess human exposures to metals associated with airborne particulate matter in urban environments. Analytical and sampling methodologies will be developed to determine the relationship between aerodynamic particle size and metal solubility/bioaccessibility. Refinements in measurement techniques arising from this research will be applied to the monitoring of personal, indoor and outdoor exposures in the Windsor-Detroit area, with the ultimate goal of providing Health Canada assessors and regulators with reliable and representative exposure data in the Windsor-Detroit region. Concerns about poor air quality in the Windsor Detroit airshed have led to a number of air health effects studies being undertaken by Health Canada. This research is part of the Border Air Quality Strategy, an international agreement between the governments of Canada and the US.
