The TEAM Study measured exposures to 20-25 volatile organic compounds in the air, drinking water, and exhaled breath of 650 persons in 4 states. Volume I is a summary and overview of the entire study. Volume II deals with studies in New Jersey, North Carolina, and North Dakota. Volume III deals with studies in California. Volume IV presents the Standard Operations Procedures employed in the study. Major findings include: (1) personal monitors and breath spirometers employing Tenax adsorbents are sensitive and adequately precise instruments to determine normal daily exposures of the general public; (2) personal and indoor exposures generally exceeded outdoor concentrations; (3) major sources of exposure include occupations, smoking, visiting dry cleaners, and filling gas tanks.
