Thank you for visiting the Fairbanks Winter Air Study website. This is a 4 year study funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2019 that will focus on improving understanding of wintertime Arctic outdoor and indoor air pollution. The focus of this study was a result of concerns expressed by Fairbanks and North Pole residents, who often expressed concerns related to indoor air quality, particularly   due to the amount of time residents spend indoors during the winter months.
