Modeling Framework of Population Exposure to Traffic-related PM2.5 and Environmental Equity Analysis: Case Study in Atlanta, Georgia

This work proposes an extension to previous research of the high-resolution modeling framework to estimate the population exposure to traffic-related fine particular matter of 2.5 μm or smaller (PM2.5) at an individual/household level, with the input of travel paths, demographic information, and concentration profiles. The proposed extension focuses on additional uncertainty analysis associated with temporal spatial aggregation of input data through the modeling framework and expanded equity analysis based on household-level demographic data in the Metro Atlanta area.
