    Grills and grilles: cooking and traffic as drivers of spatial variations in exposure to particulate matter by Prof. Albert Presto, Carnegie Mellon
    "Sharp spatial gradients of particulate matter (PM), organic aerosol (OA), and black carbon (BC) concentrations exist at intra-city scales (1 mg m-3 of traffic- and cooking-related primary emissions, with some populations exposed to high concentrations from both sources. Results for Oakland show similar spatial patterns and concentration trends. While these data were collected for two cities, the source mix in many U.S. cities is similar. We therefore expect similar PM spatial patterns and increased exposures in high-source areas nationwide."
