Atmospheric particles play key roles in climate and air quality. Though microscopic in size, aerosol particles have global impacts on our environment, health, and climate. This talk will introduce some of the more intriguing aspects of aerosol particles, while highlighting some of our ongoing research. Topics covered will span global to individual level impacts and include: the impacts of fine particulate matter on health, monetizing the health-co-benefits of reductions, traffic-related air pollution in cities, the role of soot particles in climate change, and a new inexpensive sensor technology for individualized exposure assessment.
