Abstract

Particulate matter is one of the pollutants that have adverse effect to human health
such as respiratory and cardiopulmonaryillness. Based on the studies, transportation
has been identified as one of the major source of particulate matter emission. The
objective of this project is to measure the particulate matter concentration level
around fee university campus. There are 5 selected sampling points which are at the
mam gate, student village area, student room, lecture hall and administration
department. The device used to measure the particulate matter concentration is
MiniVoI 1100 Low Flow-rate Air Sampler. The average flow rate used for the device
is -3 L/min. Duration for the sampling is for 24 hours. The result indicates that the
highest particulate matter in at the main gate area this is due to the active
transportation activities. The major sources of the particulate matters in the campus
area are from vehicles and also from windblown dust, road dust and construction
activities. Outdoor air quality has been measured to be poorer than the indoor air
qu&liiy.
