Los Angeles International Airport Exposures Studies. Study 1: Air Monitoring Study at Los Angeles International Airport, Study 2: Air Monitoring Study in the Area of Los Angeles International Airport, Study 3: Inglewood Particulate Fallout Study Under and Near the Flight Path to Los Angeles International Airport, Study 4: Los Angeles Superior Court-Airport Courthouse Study
|Study 1 sampled emissions in May and June 1998 and involved CO, PM, and VOC sampling at LAX at two curbside locations to determine the nature and levels of gases generated by motor vehicle and avionics activities. The SCAQMD conducted this study to address concerns about pollutant levels to which LAX staff may be exposed.|
Study 2 sampled emissions in June and July 1999 and again in September 1999, and involved PM and VOC sampling in the vicinity of LAX to determine whether operations at LAX are impacting the air quality of communities near the airport. The SCAQMD conducted this study to address public concerns about pollutants which may be attributed to LAX operations.
Study 3 sampled in April and May, 2002, and conducted fallout sampling within the greater Inglewood area under and near the flight path to LAX. The study was conducted as a follow-up to earlier studies to address public concerns about aircraft emissions.
Study 4 sampled in January through March, 2001, and sampled for air toxics contaminants in the vicinity of the courthouse building. The results of this study were compared to seasonally comparable data collected as part of the Felton elementary school study (east of LAX) and the MATES II study. The study was undertaken in response to a request from the Los Angeles Superior Court about possible elevated levels of toxic air contaminants in the vicinity of the courthouse building.
