Indoor Air Quality Scientific Foundation Resources Bank

With support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Indoor Environment Group has developed a web site called the Indoor Air Quality Scientific Foundations Resources Bank that is used as an educational resource in university and private sector classes on indoor air quality. The web site is also designed to be a resource with information and algorothms to guide decisions made by building designers and operators.

The site focuses on the effects of indoor environmental quality parameters on people’s health and performance.When possible, quantitative relationships are developed and provided on the web site after publication in journals.

Currently the web site has sections on building ventilation, dampness and mold, work and school performance, volatile organic compounds, and benefits of improved indoor environmental quality. Under development are sections on air cleaning and the relationships of climate change with indoor environmental quality.
