Recently questions concerning the environmental fate of nanoparticles arising from agricultural operations and from the manufacture, use or disposal of consumer products has arisen. Little is known about the toxicology and environmental behavior of these particles. This project will investigate the physical, chemical, and biological nature of particulate matter, including nanoparticles, derived from agricultural practices, processes, and operations and from the production, use, and disposal of consumer products, as they impact air, water, and soil quality and associated health, economic, and environmental impacts.
