A Task-Based Analysis of Black Carbon Exposure in Iowa Farmers During Harvest

Description
Reports on a study that measures black carbon concentrations as an indicator for diesel exhaust exposure in farmers over a 20-day period during the harvest season in southeast Iowa. The intent of the study is to identify the frequency and levels of exposure to black carbon associated with diesel-related activities and determine if these levels are above concentrations found in urban environments.
