Estimating Concentration Peaks and Toxic Loads in Hazard Assessment

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
February 18, 1997 - 12:00pm
Location: 
90-3148
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Acute odour irritation and toxicity from indoor and outdoor airborne contaminants is strongly related to momentary peak concentrations.  Dr. Wilson will review the state-of-the-art in estimating fluctuating concentrations and predicting once-per-event peak values.  Some rule-of-thumb guidelines will be proposed to allow estimates of 90th percentile exceedence limits, and peak levels knowing only the mean concentration of a naturally dispersing pollutant.
