Professor Karen R. Polenske

Karen R. Polenske's Multiregional Planning workgroup is surveying the living conditions of cokemaking workers and monitoring the particulate pollution to which the workers are exposed in the plant and at home. For both projects, the team is developing tools of analysis to examine the energy used and pollution created in the plant and the coal and coke transportation in the Province. Team members are beginning the training of local officials, plant managers, and Chinese analysts in the conduct of surveys, the use of the tools, and the methods of pollution monitoring.
