This completely updated edition of Exposure Assessment in Environmental Epidemiology offers a practical introduction to exposure assessment methodologies in environmental epidemiologic studies. In addition to methods for traditional methods - questionnaires, biomonitoring - this new edition isexpanded to include geographic information systems, modeling, personal sensoring, remote sensing, and OMICs technologies. In addition, each of these methods is contextualized within a recent epidemiology study, maximizing illustration for students and those new to these to these techniques. Withclear writing and extensive illustration, this book will be useful to anyone interested in exposure assessment, regardless of background.
Mark J. Nieuwenhuijsen, PhD, is Research Professor at the Centre for Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL) in Barcelona, Spain. He is an expert in environmental exposure assessment, epidemiology, and health risk/impact assessment, and has authored or co-authored more than 250 peer reviewed papers.
