Mapping of Airborne Particulate Matter Under Two Land Uses - Agriculture and Unpaved Road

Southwest Consortium for Environmental Research and Policy

The particulate matter emission from unpaved roads starts with the pulverization of surface material by the force of the wheels vehicle, uplifting and exposure of road to strong air currents behind the wheels. The objectives of the project were to demonstrate the usefulness of a simple technique involving rotorods and sticky tapes for collecting suspended airborne particulate matter emitted from unpaved road due to vehicular...
