Exposure Commitment Assessments of Environmental Pollutants Volume 1 Number 1: Exposure Commitment Concepts and Application; Summary Exposure Assessments for Lead, Cadmium and Arsenic - MARC Report Number 23

United Nations Environment Programme ; Monitoring and Assessment Research Centre (1981)

This paper gives the definitions, notation, and basic concepts of the method and briefly discusses the application to the transfer of pollutants from sources to man. Exposure commitments give a basis for comparing contributions to exposure from various pathways and for estimating equilibrium concentrations resulting from continuing releases. The method provides a convenient framework for expressing source-receptor relationships.
