Human Health Exposure Modeling and Risk Assessment

ESRAC members have developed and implemented human exposure modeling for volatile organic compounds, particulate matter, dust, and pesticides. These include outdoor-indoor transport and indoor source models coupled to personal exposure simulation models. Such exposure models have been applied to a risk ranking of hazardous air pollutants in the U.S., route-specific risk estimates of pesticide exposures to children, and particulate matter exposures in Europe. Research includes exposure and risk assessment to contaminants in dust.
