The paper presents a model, EXPOSURE, for calculating individual exposure to indoor air pollutants from sources. The model calculates exposure due to individual, as opposed to population, activity patterns and source use. The model uses data on source emissions, room-to-room air flows, air exchange with the outdoors, and indoor sinks to predict concentration/time profiles for all rooms. The concentration/time profiles are then combined with individual activity patterns to estimate exposure. The agreement between predicted concentration/time profiles and experimental data is excellent.
