Description

Interagency Service Agreement - ADEQ Contract No EV06-0162 - Master Agreement Tracking of PM Plumes Using a Doppler LIDAR-Amendment 1 South Phoenix Health and PM Study - ADEQ Task Assignment# EV09-0135 The objective of this research project is to collect samples of coarse and fine particulate matter (PM) and representative soil and road dust at two locations in South Phoenix, AZ and a comparable location in Tempe, AZ, to investigate potential impacts to local population health. As part of this project, my research group at ASU proposes to perform quantification of organic and elemental carbon, extraction and quantification of unique organic molecular markers capable of isolating different sources of organic aerosols, and collection, resuspension and size-selective sampling of representative road dust and soil from local yards. Targeted organic species to be quantified will include the petroleum biomarkers (for tracking the contribution from vehicular emissions), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (or PAH - important contributors to the health effects of PM) and anhydrous sugars (to separate the contribution to wood combustion). Amendment#1 to ADEQ Task Assignment EV09-0135 (Adjustment to original account TUS0002) The objective of the overall research project is to collect samples of coarse and fine particulate matter (PM) and representative soil and road dust at two locations in South Phoenix, AZ and a comparable location in Tempe, AZ, to investigate potential impacts to local population health. As part of this project, my research group at ASU proposes to perform quantification of trace elements in samples of coarse and fine particulate matter (PM), collected on Teflon filters during the field part of the ADEQ South Phoenix Study.
