UFP Monitoring System for Children Exposure to Air Pollution in Rural Bhutan - Air and Climate - Air Pollution Treatment

Traditionally exposure assessment studies in developing countries have been bases on fixed-site monitoring. This study followed school children in three sites and quatified daily personal exposure to UFP with real time monitoring NanoTracer devices. Diaries were kept to correlate exposure levels to activity and the relevant micro-environment. The highest UFP exposures resulted from cooking and eating (64% of daily exposure, due to cooking on traditional wood-fired mud cookstoves). The lowest UFP exposures were during time spend outdoors at school.
