Monitoring and exposure assessment of pregnant women to particulate matter

Reference Number: 
Università degli Studi dell'Insubria - Dipartimento di Scienza e Alta Tecnologia, Italy
Closing date: 
30th Apr 2019

The aim of the project is the monitoring and the evaluation of the personal exposure of susceptible subjects to atmospheric particulate matter (PM1, PM2.5, PM4, PM10 and TSP).
Concentrations will be measured by portable analyzers, characterized by high temporal resolution, able to identify exposure peaks.
The data processing phase will include the analysis of atmospheric particulate matter measured during the monitoring phase. The GPS data, collected during the monitoring phase, will be used to associate position and permanence of subjects in a particular environment with the measured PM concentrations.
