Abstract (300 words maximum)

Air pollution is a massive problem that the world is facing. Different areas will vary in air quality based on the season, amount of freeways, and the amount of public transportation. Purpose: To determine the air quality at multiple sites and observe what factors would contribute to the results. Methods: Take an air quality detector to numerous different locations that have other infrastructures and write down any object, building, or transportation in the area. Procedure: We will go and record the air quality at Soccer in the Streets’ venue. We will go every weekend till the conclusion of the project. Walk around and write down anything that might affect the air quality. Also, record the air quality at each site with the results and the time and place next to it. The collected data will be analyzed and the descriptive statistics will be shown. Results: Air quality at sites such as Marta and near big interstates like 75 and 285 are higher than those in the suburban areas. This is because most public and private transportation vehicles use gas which over time creates more and more air pollution. Also in springtime, there is a large amount of pollen that can affect the air quality. Areas near extensive forests have worse air pollution because of the large amounts of pollen in the air. Conclusion: Big cities and places near large popular highways create the most air pollution. This is because very few people use electric cars as well as very few public transport options.
