Clearing the air
The impacts of air pollution on communities living near airports are no longer up in the air, thanks to breakthrough research by professor Tim Larson.
SeaTac Airport air pollution path identified
The community surrounding SeaTac Airport has long wondered if air pollution caused by aircraft is reaching nearby residential areas. Thanks to UW researchers, including professor Tim Larson, new findings have landed.
