By Sylvia Kantor, College of Agricultural, Human & Natural Resource Sciences LIND, Wash. – In the world’s driest rainfed wheat region, Washington State University researchers have identified summer fallow management practices that can make all the difference for farmers, water and soil conservation, and air quality.
PULLMAN, Wash. – Smoke has made the air unhealthy for sensitive groups – including infants, children, adults older than 65, pregnant women, people who have had a stroke and those with heart or lung disease, asthma or diabetes.
By Kate Nelson, Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture intern PULLMAN, Wash. – As wildfire smoke clouds Pacific Northwest skies, researchers from Washington State University are helping improve air quality predictions with the first high-resolution, Web-based air-quality forecast system in the country.
By Tina Hilding, College of Engineering & Architecture YAKIMA, Wash. – A new Washington State University study has found that a combination of agricultural emissions, human-based activity – like running car engines and burning woodstoves – and cold, still winter nights adds up to poorer air quality in the Yakima Valley than in much of […]
