Abstract

Despite well-documented effects of exposure to ambient air pollution to health, with continuous increased morbidity and mortality, there is limited detailed measurement of indoor/outdoor concentrations, of the elemental composition of PM, and of personal exposure. This research examined individual exposure accounting for the spatial and temporal variability of PM combined with personal monitoring during daily activities, and using a detailed analysis of pollutant composition.The results have shown substantial intra-individual variability of exposure and important indoor exposure with differences even within the same building. Detailed, individual measurements, as opposed to concentrations from monitoring stations, contribute to more accurate exposure assessments.
