  • Description: The satellite model estimates were generated at 10 × 10–km resolution beginning in the year 2000.E10 PM2.5 estimation was then improved by using data from spatial predictors (eg, elevation, population density, traffic density, point and area emissions, and percentages of land use) and temporal predictors (eg, temperature, wind speed, and visibility), as described in detail in previous work.E10,E11 Using PM2.5 values measured on the ground throughout the Northeastern United States, we derived an estimate of local primary PM2.5 generated within 100 m of the home by traffic and the burning of heating fuel (in the winter) estimated by using a secondary land-use regression model.E10 All analyses of PM2.5 exposure were adjusted for local primary PM2.5 values and indicate the community-level exposure to primary and secondary PM2.5, including transported air pollution from outside of the community and primary particles generated more than 100 m from the home. An updated model with satellite data...
