Secondary organic aerosols formed from oxidation of biogenic volatile organic compounds in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California
Received 7 February 2006; revised 14 April 2006; accepted 17 May 2006; published 25 August 2006. [1] Biogenic volatile organic compound (BVOC) emissions, such as isoprene and terpenes, can beExpand
Summertime transport of current‐use pesticides from California's Central Valley to the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, USA
Aricultural activity in California's Central Valley may be an important source of pesticides that are transported in the air to the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, USA. Pesticides applied to thisExpand
Abstract Rapid assessment surveys of tropical bird communities are increasingly used to estimate species richness and to determine conservation priorities, but results of different studies are oftenExpand
Atmospheric concentrations of polybrominated diphenyl ethers at near-source sites.
Although there were elevated inhalation exposures at the three source sites, the exposure was not expected to cause adverse health effects based on the lowest reference dose currently in the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), although these RfD values are currently being re-evaluated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Elemental Profiles in Feather Samples from a Mercury-Contaminated Lake in Central California
Although the osprey showed the highest mercury levels of any species sampled, their reproduction does not appear to be depressed and Elements known to be nutrients, such as sulfur and zinc, did not vary significantly among species or sites. Expand
Large PAHs detected in fine particulate matter emitted from light-duty gasoline vehicles
Abstract Emission factors of large PAHs with 6–8 aromatic rings with molecular weights (MW) of 300–374 were measured from 16 light-duty gasoline-powered vehicles (LDGV) and one heavy-dutyExpand
A sensitive method for the quantification of acrolein and other volatile carbonyls in ambient air.
The goal of this research was to develop an analytical method for determining ppt concentrations of acrolein and other carbonyls in air with short sampling times (10 min), which uses a mist chamber to collectcarbonyls by forming water-soluble carbonyl-bisulfite adducts. Expand
Development and application of a generalized physiologically based pharmacokinetic model for multiple environmental contaminants.
The pharmacological disposition of four environmental contaminants resulting from acute and chronic exposure regimes is simulated using a general physiologically based pharmacological (PBPK) model, designed to complement environmental fate models, thus linking chemical emission rates with environmental and physiological behavior as part of the larger environmental risk assessment process.

Indoor acrolein emission and decay rates resulting from domestic cooking events
Abstract Acrolein (2-propenal) is a common constituent of both indoor and outdoor air, can exacerbate asthma in children, and may contribute to other chronic lung diseases. Recent studies have foundExpand
Origin, occurrence, and source emission rate of acrolein in residential indoor air.
High acrolein concentrations were also found in newly built, uninhabited homes and in emissions from lumber commonly used in home construction, suggesting indoor contributions from off-gassing and/or secondary formation. Expand
