An EETD Seminar on July 22, 2013. Speaker: Lance Wallace, EPA (Retired)
Ultrafine particles (UFP) are implicated in morbidity (oxidative stress) and mortality (cardiorespiratory disease). They are so tiny (less than 100 nm in diameter) that they can evade cell defenses and perhaps can bypass the blood-brain barrier. Unlike larger particles (PM2.5, PM10) they are not monitored regularly in outdoor air. This has left a gap in our knowledge of outdoor concentrations and the major outdoor sources.
