Sometimes a detour of less than 1 km can make for a much less polluted ride. The researchers who developed the online tool were Marianne Hatzopoulou (project lead); Guillaume Barreau (online tool developer); and Scott Weichenthal and Mark Goldberg (health perspectives on cycling and air pollution).<br />  </p><div class="field field-type-text field-field-category"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Category:&nbsp;</div> office_of_sustainability </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-primary-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_primary_image" width="450" height="329" alt="" src="http://www.mcgill.ca/channels/sites/mcgill.ca.channels/files/channels/image/bike-family.jpg?0" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-source-site"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Source Site:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.mcgill.ca/sustainability">Source Site</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Published Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Tue, 2015-04-28 05:27</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.mcgill.ca/channels/news/clean-ride-mapper-cycling-less-polluted-routes-246968" target="_blank">read more</a></p> External Faculty Staff Students Tue, 28 Apr 2015 09:27:40 +0000 McGill University 109749 at http://www.mcgill.ca/channels We've looked at clouds from both sides now http://www.mcgill.ca/channels/news/weve-looked-clouds-both-sides-now-247600 <p>No one can deny that cloud services offer the most affordable solution for file storage. Never before has our consumption of video and audio been higher and we seem to have an insatiable need for more space. The packrats among us are no doubt thrilled about the virtually limitless and often free space provided by the cloud -- it's like having a spare room in a magic dimension that lets you keep a much as
