Environmental and Public Health Impacts of Urban Transportation Infrastructure
Motorized transportation and freight-related infrastructure in cities, including cars, buses, trucks, trains and ships, provides the mobility and services our economy and culture has demanded. We now recognize that this infrastructure leads to many environmental and health impacts. This seminar will review air quality issues related to transportation infrastructure, discuss methods used to analyze the spatial impacts of traffic, and present designs and results of research investigating vehicle-related emissions and health effects, including ongoing studies.
