Their 15-minute presentations, which address the sources, characteristics and measurement of air pollution both indoors and outdoor, will cover such well-known and surprising sources as molds, floor materials, bus exhaust fumes, scented candles, French fries and books in environments ranging from a sealed airliner cabin to the wide open spaces.
