LIFE Index-Air finished the campaign “Exposure assessment of children using personal monitors” with a fantastic day in the Zoo
Nine children have been selected from different areas of Lisbon to carry personal exposure monitors during their daily activities along three days. Each child completed a time-activity diary to record all the information about their time-activity patterns, since the exposure depends on the different locations in which they spend time and respective activities.
This study aims to quantify the children’s daily exposure to airborne particles, since children are considered a susceptible group to the harmful effects of air pollution.
On 16th June, all voluntaries along with LIFE Index-Air team members (Vânia Martins, Carolina Correia and Inês Lopes) went to the Zoo of Lisbon to commemorate the end of the sampling campaign. Zoo of Lisbon joined LIFE Index-Air by giving entries to the Zoo to all our volunteers.
