University of Iowa receives $899,401 research grant

Funding will help develop better air quality estimates for U.S. cities

Iowa

EPA's National Center for Environmental Research has awarded a $899,401 grant to the University of Iowa for a research project that will develop techniques to identify the most harmful fractions and sources of air particulate matter in major U.S. cities, including Chicago.

The University of Iowa's grant for "Innovative Approaches to Particulate Matter Health, Composition, and Source Questions" comes from EPA's Science to Achieve Results Program. STAR engages the nation's best scientists and engineers in targeted research that complements EPA's intramural research program and those of EPA's partners in other federal agencies.

Through the grant, University of Iowa researchers will work with partners at the University of Ottawa in Ontario, Canada, to build on recent advances in air quality modeling, data assimilation and satellite remote sensing to develop improved estimates of air particulate matter for major U.S. cities. Once developed, the estimates will be made available for public download by other researchers, and will be used in pilot-scale epidemiological studies.

"EPA Region 7 congratulates the University of Iowa for its success in the STAR grant competition," said Acting Regional Administrator William Rice. "This collaborative research project holds great promise for new discoveries to benefit atmospheric science as a whole."
