Development of robust inhalation simulation procedures for measuring exposure to potentially harmful elements from soil particulates

Development of robust inhalation simulation procedures for measuring exposure to potentially harmful elements from soil particulates

Human exposure to soil-dust can be climate driven in that airborne particulates can be transported (and deposited great distances from the point of origin) through the atmosphere by weather and climatic patterns. The impact of air quality and particulate matter on human health is well recognized. Particle loading plays a significant role in the detrimental […]
