Buonanno, G., Mazaheri, M., Fuoco, F., Clifford, S., Russi, A., Morawska, L., Vigo, P., Jayaratne, R., & Viola, A. (2013) Alveolar dose comparison of ultrafine particles for Australian and Italian children. In 12th Biennial National Conference “Healthy, Wealthy and Safe” Macquarie Park, Sydney Metrology Society of Australia 2013 conference, 15 – 17 October 2013, MGSM Executive Conference Centre, Sydney, NSW.


Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that exposure to particulate air pollution is associated with several adverse health effects. Recently, interest has focused on ultrafine particles (UFPs, diameter ≤ 100 nm), due to the adverse health effects caused by their ability to induce inflammation and deposit in secondary organs [1]. These effects are much more pronounced in children because they inhale a higher dose of UFPs relative to both lung size (when compared with adults) [2] and increased breathing rates, since they are generally more physically active than adults ...

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
