Quantitative Environmental Risk Analysis for Human Health

Robert A. Fjeld


A accomplished TEXTBOOK AND REFERENCE FOR QUANTITATIVE ENVIRONMENTAL possibility research FOR either CHEMICAL AND RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINANTS

Environmental hazard research is complicated and interdisciplinary; this booklet explains the basic techniques and analytical tools in every one crucial self-discipline. With an emphasis on suggestions and purposes of quantitative instruments plus insurance of research of either chemical and radioactive contaminants, this can be a entire resource.

After an creation and an outline of the fundamentals of environmental modeling, the booklet covers key components in environmental possibility research method, including:

  • Release evaluate and resource characterization
  • Migration of contaminants in a variety of media, together with floor water, groundwater, the ambience, and the nutrition chain
  • Exposure assessment
  • Basic human toxicology and dose-response
  • Risk characterization, together with dose-response modeling and analysis
  • Risk administration approach and methods
  • Risk conversation and public participation

This reference additionally relates chance research to present environmental legislation and laws. an excellent textbook for graduate scholars and upper-level undergraduates in a number of engineering and quantitative technology disciplines, specifically civil and environmental engineering, it's also a good reference for practitioners in undefined, environmental consulting companies, and regulatory agencies.
