Description:

journal article

Purpose/Objective:

The Brooklyn Traffic Real-Time Ambient Pollutant Penetration and Environmental Dispersion (B-TRAPPED) Study was a multidisciplinary field research project that investigated the transport, dispersion, and infiltration processes of traffic emission particulate matter (PM) pollutants in a near-highway urban residential area. The field study was focused on the simultaneous and continuous time-series measurements of PM concentration and meteorological data at multiple outdoor and indoor monitoring locations to examine and characterize both temporal and spatial patterns of the PM concentration movements within micro-scale distances (<500 m) from the highway, The urban PM transport, dispersion, and infiltration processes were mathmatically described in a theoretical model that was constructed to develop the experimental objectives of the B-TRAPPED Study.
