Christina Hall successfully gave a presentation entitled “Assessing Air Pollution with Spanish Moss as a Bioindicator in the Low Country of Savannah River Basin “at the 29th Annual Meeting of CIRMS “Trusting Radiation Science: Measuring what cannot be seen”. Her study indicated the correlations between the concentration of heavy metals in Spanish Moss and the level of air pollution in the rural, low traffic, and high traffic area.
