Tutorial 12:

Quantifying Aerosol Exposure

Philip K. Hopke, University of Rochester, USA

Abstract: Quantifying aerosol exposure is important for many applications, including supporting epidemiology studies, risk assessment, development of mitigation strategies, and sustainability efforts for cities and communities. This tutorial will review current measurement and modeling methods for estimating aerosol exposure in non-industrial indoor and in-cabin microenvironments, such as homes, schools, hospitals, commercial buildings, and vehicles. In this tutorial, we will discuss existing as well as emerging future approaches for quantifying aerosol exposure.
