The balance between facilitating global trade at the nation’s #1 container port while also trying to protect the environment is not an issue that the Port of Los Angeles (the Port) takes lightly. In efforts to reduce dangerous air emissions, the Port (centrally located in San Pedro, California) set up four air quality stations around the bay area in order to track and monitor air pollutants as part of the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP). Particulate matter under 2.5 micrometers (PM2.5) is considered one of the more alarming air pollutants because they pose the greatest health risks, such as asthma, cancer, and lung disease.
This project's goal is to see the effects of the container ships that dock at the Port have on PM2.5 levels in the San Pedro bay area.
