Population Exposure to Aerosols

Population Exposure to Aerosols

The exposure of individuals to aerosols varies over time and across a population as a result of lifestyle and activity choices. Studies within this research area are investigating the relationship between aerosol characteristics and personal exposure, with an aim towards establishing the dominant causes and variability in personal exposure that exists. Measurements are being made within different microenvironments to determine the influence that everyday activities, such as driving a vehicle or cooking, have on an individual’s intake of aerosols. An understanding of the exposure of individuals and populations to aerosols is needed in order to link aerosol characteristics to health impacts, and to suggest healthy lifestyle adjustments to reduce the intake of aerosols.
