Indoor infiltration of smoke and other pollutants
Facilitator: Dr Bill Trompetter – Indoor Air SIG Chair
Time: 1 pm – 3 pm AEST
Infiltration of outdoor smoke into homes has become very topical recently, especially when bushfire smoke was blanketing parts of Australia, and public were being advised to stay indoors for some protection. A similar situation occurs in many southern Australian and New Zealand, towns and cities, where outdoor smoke levels frequently exceed air quality guidelines during cold calm winter nights. In this AIR TALK, four presentations collectively address the topic of infiltration of outdoor air pollution into buildings and homes, indoor exposures and deposition onto indoor surfaces, and finally a look into mitigation measures.
