Title: The Urban Data Analysis and Modeling Project
Investigators: Frederick, John , Kotamarthi, V. Rao
Institution: University of Chicago , Argonne National Laboratory
EPA Project Officer: Chung, Serena
Project Period: July 1, 2003 through June 30, 2004 (Extended to June 30, 2005)
RFA: Targeted Research Center (2003) Recipients Lists
Research Category: Targeted Research

Objective:

The objective of this research project is to define the role of specific urban characteristics (altered air quality, altered surface properties, and vertical structure) on the chemical and physical environments to which large populations are exposed. The approach involves analysis of measurements from the Chicago area combined with mechanistic models.
