Engineering researchers at UT Austin, led by Prof. Joshua Apte in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering, have developed the most detailed and extensive local map of air pollution ever produced for an urban area. Using specially equipped Google Street View cars to measure air quality on a block-by-block basis, the research team found that air pollution can vary dramatically even within a single city block. The research, conducted in partnership with the Environmental Defense Fund, Google, and Aclima, could address major air quality monitoring gaps worldwide. Read more.
