Notice of Proposed Procurement (NPP)
Solicitation #: 1000184419 Closing Date: December 12, 2016 Time: 2PM EST
This requirement is for the department of Health Canada.
Title: Development of National Scale Predictions of PM2.5 Oxidative Potential Using Remote Sensing Observations at High Spatial Resolution
Oxidative stress plays an important role in the underlying biological mechanisms linking fine particulate air pollution (PM2.5) to adverse health outcomes including cancer, cardiorespiratory morbidity/mortality and possibly other diseases including dementia. Health Canada conducted a survey of PM2.5 oxidative potential in 2012 and 2013 and large regional differences were apparent in the ability of PM2.5 to cause oxidative stress. Moreover, studies funded by CARA linking oxidative potential data to population-based cohorts in Ontario suggest that: 1) Long-term exposure to PM2.5 oxidative burden is more strongly associated with lung cancer mortality than PM2.5 mass concentrations in the Canadian Census Health and Environment Cohort (CanCHEC); 2) Short-term exposure to PM2.5 is more strongly associated with acute myocardial infarction in areas with higher oxidative potential; and 3) Long-term exposure to PM2.5 oxidative burden is a stronger risk factor for the development of dementia than exposure to undifferentiated particle mass in the Ontario OHIP cohort.
Health Canada and Statistics Canada conduct cohort studies to examine the association between exposure to combustion related ambient air pollution and mortality.
Health Canada is seeking proposals from a supplier that can develop methodology to combine satellite based information into an estimate of surface concentrations of fine particulate matter (PM2.5), the following components - sulphate, nitrate, ammonium, metals, organic mass, black carbon, and dust - with coverage of the 10 provinces of Canada and the 48 contiguous states of United States. The second objective is to estimate source sector contributions to ambient PM2.5, PM2.5 components, NO2 and O3. The third objective will be to incorporate estimates of oxidative potential of PM2.5 in the 1 km gridded estimates (and source sector contributions) to represent long-term exposures covering the ten Canadian provinces. It is anticipated that it will be necessary to carry out a fusion of remote sensing based aerosol optical depth, chemical transport model, ground data, and land use information to complete this work.
Because of the exploratory nature of these studies, it will be possible for Health Canada to give notice and terminate the project if interim results indicate an inability to support the stated objective of appropriately supporting epidemiological research.
An example of similar work applying satellite remote sensing observations to an epidemiological investigation is presented in:

b) Deliver evaluation of initial GEOS-Chem simulation of PM2.5 composition at 0.25o resolution (to prepare for activity f)
c) Deliver initial evaluation of PM2.5 composition dataset at 1km resolution (based on the approach described in a)
d) Deliver final PM2.5 composition dataset (based on the approach described in a)
e) Deliver presentation of initial simulation capability of metals in GEOS-Chem (to prepare for activity g)
