Mazaheri, M., Clifford, S., Mokhtar, M.A., Fuoco, F., Buonanno, G., & Morawska, L. (2013) Alveolar dose of ultrafine particles for children in urban environments. In European Aerosol Conference (EAC 2013), 1-6 September 2013, Clarion Congress Hotel , Prague.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to quantify school children’s exposure to ultrafine particles (UFP) in urban environments. The study was conducted as part of a larger epidemiological project aiming to determine the association between exposures to UFPs and children’s health, titled “Ultrafine Particles from Traffic Emissions and Children’s Health”1 (UPTECH). School children aged 8-11 years old at 24 state schools within the Brisbane Metropolitan Area participated in the present study. This paper presents the methodology and results for calculating deposited UFP surface area in the alveolar region (dose), where UFP deposition is more efficient for particles larger than 6 nm...

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.
