The purpose of this study is to map the geographic and social distributions of environmental hazards, to learn how such hazards are understood by those who live with them, and to understand when and how people exposed to such hazards will organize and take action. Areas of research focus include toxic metals, criterion air pollutants, urban heat, and other hazards. We also investigate the distribution of environmental amenities, such as urban parks.
