Houston Air Toxics Biomarkers of Exposure Study (HATBES)
The Houston Air Toxics Biomarkers of Exposure Study (HATBES) is a research project that will investigate the utility of measuring various biomarkers of exposure to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in human populations.
Houston Exposure to Air Toxics Study (HEATS)
HEATS is one of the largest studies on air toxics ever undertaken in Houston, and was designed to help us better understand how toxics that people breathe compare to toxics measured at stationary air monitors.
Midlothian, TX Ambient Air Collection & Analytical Chemical Analysis
Describes study for which the TCEQ has contracted to collect samples to address citizen concerns.
Remote Sensing VOC Project
A research project of the Texas Air Quality Field Study to identify emission sources of volatile organic compounds that may have gone unreported or under-reported in the TCEQ's emissions inventory.
Study: Air Pollutant Concentrations Near Texas Roadways
The Air Pollution Concentrations Near Texas Roadways Study will determine pollutant concentrations near Texas roadways, if those concentrations decrease with distance from Texas roadways, and if the rate at which they decrease is different depending on roadway type.
