Indoor and outdoor distribution of airborne pollutants in naturally ventilated classrooms
26 September 2013
The present study aims at investigating concentration levels of particulate matter PM10, PM2.5, PM1 and UFP as well as of total airborne fungi and their vertical distribution in the indoor and outdoor environment of school classrooms. Measurements were performed in two naturally ventilated high schools in Athens, from January until May 2011. Indoor concentrations of the pollutants will be presented per floor level and indoor to outdoor (I/O) concentration ratios will be estimated as a function of the floor height. The ultimate goal is to create variations’ profile of I/O pollutant ratios, so as to understand the contribution of indoor sources and the extent to which the indoor air quality is being affected by the outdoor pollutants.
