Abstract

The Ellensburg High School Advanced Placement (AP) Environmental class measured the concentration of black carbon throughout the community in winter 2015. Using an aethalometer, we determined black carbon levels both indoors and outdoors, at schools, and at public spaces. Understanding black carbon is important because it is composed of ultrafine particles which can contribute to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, as well as directly contributing to global warming.
