Modelling of skin exposure from distributed sources

    Abstract

    A simple model of indoor air pollution concentrations was used together with experimental results on deposition velocities to skin to calculate the skin dose from an outdoor plume of contaminants, The primary pathway was considered to be direct deposition to the skin from a homogeneously distributed air source. The model has been used to show that skin deposition was a significant dose contributor for example when compared to inhalation dose.
