Our Challenge

Our goal this week is to learn about air quality in Burlington and Vermont. We will investigate the sources of air pollution, monitor air pollutants in the ambient air at two locations in Burlington, analyze Vermont air quality data, review radiological data, and conduct back-trajectories to learn about where our air is coming from. Additionally, we will assess the public health risk of air pollutants during our week of investigation. Click here to see the a-team's mission.
