The Center for Advancing Research in Transportation Emissions, Energy, and Health (CARTEEH) has developed a unique, cross-disciplinary course titled “Traffic-Related Air Pollution: Emissions, Human Exposures, and Health.” This initiative is split into two phases.
The course is intended to form the basis for a three-credit-hour graduate-level course offered by consortium member institutions and targeted at students and practitioners in the areas of urban planning, transportation planning, transportation policy, transportation engineering, geography, environmental sciences, environmental epidemiology, environmental policy, and public health. However, the course’s individual lectures are designed to stand alone, and as such, they can be mixed and matched to be transferable to other locations and other purposes, including:
- complementing existing academic or professional courses, including at the undergraduate level; and
- devising a smaller course with select lectures for target audiences with specific needs and/or existing knowledge.
In its entirety, the course is designed to equip participants with cutting-edge knowledge and the skill sets required to understand, assess, and quantify road traffic, vehicle emissions, traffic-related air pollution (TRAP), human exposures, biological mechanisms, associated health effects, and population-based impacts and their societal costs. Further, the course will specifically explore the role of current knowledge in environmental regulation and real-world policy making and practice.
