Shown below is Real-Time web output from the University of Wisconsin Laser Air Particulate Pollution Monitor located in Eau Claire under the sponsorship of Crispin Pierce, PhD, Associate Professor and Program Director Environmental Public Health Program, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
Research being conducted by Dr. Crispin Pierce and three undergraduate students in the Environmental Public Health Program at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has the following aims:
1. Review previous research and exposure standards for environmental and workplace exposure to “simple” or “nuisance” dust, particulate matter (PM10, PM4, PM2.5, and “respirable” dust particles), and crystalline silica (quartz).
2. Record GPS coordinates, wind speed and direction, particulate matter (mass concentration and particle concentration), and crystalline silica concentration, and photograph locations surrounding the EOG Resources Chippewa Falls sand processing plant before and during operation.
3. Report measured particulate matter and crystalline silica concentrations and recommended exposure standards to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, EOG Resources, concerned citizens, and the environmental health community (through conference presentations and peer-reviewed publications).
For further information, please contact Dr. Pierce at 715-836-5589 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
