This project will measure ambient air pollution, specifically fine particulate matter (PM), at a fine spatial resolution using mobile monitoring, which will complement the existent fixed monitoring done by the Ministry of Environment. The mobile monitoring will provide the resolution necessary to identify pollution "hotspots" within the airshed, which will, in turn, support airshed management planning and air pollution control strategies. In addition, it will provide a more detailed "exposure" assessment for studying air pollution-related health effects, and inform the greater public understanding on air pollution in Prince George.
