Project Description

DRI will assist BAAQMD in developing and implementing the West Oakland Measurement Study by achieving the following objectives: **Determine the spatial variations in seasonal and annual 24-hours ambient concentrations of toxic air contaminants within West Oakland based ontheir proximity to the Port of Oakland, arterial roadways, and freeways. **Examine the day of week variations in ambient concentrations corresponding to various meteorological and transport conditions. **Determine the relationship between nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monioxide (CO), volitile organic compounds (VOCs), black carbon, and particulate matter concentrations to emissions from galoline and diesel vehicles. **Estimate the source contributions of diesel PM to ambient levels of particulate matter less than 2.5 microns in diameter (PM2.5)
