In this project we investigated atmospheric levels of organophosphates pesticides (OP) in Hula Basin and their potential health impacts. This work, carried in collaboration with Prof. Yoram Finkelstein (Sharay Zedek Medical Centre), includes measurements of atmospheric levels of OP and modeling their Aeolian transport, in parallel to an epidemiological study on children from several kibbutzim in the area.
