Background

The DEARS study is building upon other human exposure air pollution studies performed by EPA in various U.S. cities such as Baltimore, MD, Fresno, CA, and Research Triangle Park, NC. The study will investigate different communities in the Detroit area and focusing on the variability of particulate matter concentrations and selected air toxics and their sources across the area. Below are links to supporting documentation concerning the study. Please note that some of these documents are technical in nature and quite long but do provide a compressive background for the purpose, scope and scientific justification of the study.
