AbstractEnvironmental impacts on human health and well-being will be discussed. Concepts and methods for exposure measurements and assessments will be shown. In the first part of the semester, air pollutants (for example for ozone, and fine particles).
In the second part, noise, its effects and control, will be covered.
Objective- to understand the basic concepts of an exposure assessment (air, noise)
- to know methods used in health effect research
- to know criteria and methods for setting threshold levels
