The project is based on field and laboratory measurements, and theoretical modeling. The project I focusing on the following main issues:
Identification of the principal factors influencing the indoor concentration of ultrafine particles (UFP), especially various measures to reduce human exposure indoors.
Quantification of the extent to which indoor environments can be designed, operated and maintained in order to achieve a substantial reduction of the indoor concentration of UFPs.
Further development of a method to predict UFP concentrations in indoor environments, based on a particle number balance model.
