Description of presentation:
Industrial Hygiene Modeling and Exposure Reconstruction Exposure reconstruction for substances of interest to human health is a process that has been used, with various levels of sophistication, as far back as the 1930s. Ultimately, the goal of an exposure reconstruction is to reduce uncertainty when estimating exposures. An overview of the process of exposure reconstruction along with an example to illustrate the process and use of modeling will be presented.
