Abstract
This chapter summarized the presentations concerning the state of the art for current exposure assessment for vapors, gases, aerosols, and complex mixtures in epidemiologic studies and hazard control surveys. Topics included the measurement of gases and vapors using methods which remove the material of interest from the air, retaining it for subsequent analysis, and methods which use portable, direct reading instrumentation which measures the analyte directly in the atmosphere; the measurement of aerosols in relation to risk assessment, reflecting the processes relevant to human exposure to airborne particulates, uptake in the respiratory tract, and integrated doses of harmfulness to vulnerable tissue; complex mixtures where the chemical compounds involved are incompletely identified or their individual toxicities unknown; and epidemiology versus hazard control.
