EXPOSURE TO TRAFFIC RELATED AIR POLLUTION IN NORTHERN IRELAND

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Clean Air is a basic requirement for human health and wellbeing. There is an extensive body of knowledge that associates a number of health conditions with exposure to air pollution. Within the United Kingdom transport is considered the main contributor to exceedances of the air quality objectives set in European legislation. Current literature focuses on outdoor exposure to traffic related air pollution, however for the majority of the public, greater time is spent indoors. Within this study nitrogen dioxide was measured in 30 homes. The indoor and outdoor levels were measured using passive diffusion tubes. Factors such as temperature, seasonal variation and distance from the road were considered when analysing the results. The findings indicate that as the level of outdoor nitrogen dioxide increased, the indoor level also increased. As the distance from the road increased, the level of nitrogen dioxide decreased.
