Indoor Model

Fraction of population applying pesticides in the indoor environmentWe are developing an indoor fugacity model to assess exposures resulting from indoor released of pesticides and other organic compounds. These exposures are important for young children in homes where pesticides are used due to their increased contact with indoor surfaces and their hand to mouth activity. I have developed a model of the indoor environment, including air and indoor surfaces such as floors and walls, an important sink/source for semi-volatile compounds. I am expanding this model to include the resulting exposure. We are also considering the models applicability for use with other consumer products.
