The study also found that traffic characteristics, land use, road types, and meteorology are important determinants of these exposures. As reported in their papaer in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology , the team collected in-vehicle and roof-top air pollution measurements over 238 commutes in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, Canada between 2010 and 2013.
