Abstract
Problems associated with estimation of human exposures to ambient air pollution are discussed. Ideally the authors would prefer to have some indication of actual dose. For most pollutants this is not presently feasible. Specific problems discussed are adequacy of outdoor monitors: the need to correct for exposures and time spent indoors: the need to have particle size distributions described and the chemistry of the particles presented. These indicate the need to develop lightweight accurate and reliable personal monitors.
