Focusing on the intersection of outdoor particulate matter and IAQ
WHY FOCUS ON PARTICULATE MATTER?
1) An estimated 130,000 deaths in the US were attributed to particulate matter PM2.5 in the US in 2005 (2009 EPA Integrated Science Assessment for Particulate Matter).
2) Pittsburgh and southwestern Pennsylvania are consistently ranked among the worst ten regions in the United States for PM2.5
3) Problem = Opportunity for Impact!
