Environmental Monitoring and Spatiotemporal Assessment of Atmospheric Ammonia Levels near Hog CAFOs in Eastern North Carolina
Using this information, Sacoby was able to create a map of North Carolina showing the distribution of ammonia and the exposure to residents who live nearhog CAFOs. This map will be valuable to show the potential exposure risks of communities, in particular, disparately burdened poor communities and susceptible populations, including young children and the elderly.For further information please contact Rebecca Riggsbee Lloyd by email at Rebecca_Lloyd@unc.edu
