Coarse Particulate Matter in the San Francisco Bay Area
We estimated annual air pollution exposures for all our participants from birth to day of recruitment. We have data on five traffic-related air pollutants: nitrogen dioxide, ozone, coarse particulate matter (PM10), fine particulate matter (PM2.5), and sulfur dioxide. These data are part of our environmental research projects.
These maps describe the average annual coarse particulate matter (PM10) exposure in 2009 (the median year of recruitment) for the San Francisco Bay Area. Circles represent participant residences. Open circles with random noise prevent determination of the participant’s address. Labels for major cities provide a reference for nearby urban centers.
