ENVIRONMENTAL RISK ASSESSMENT OF CHEMICALS
The purpose of this course is to disseminate the basic principles and methods to characterize the nature and magnitude of health risks to humans and of ecological risk to organisms and receptors due to chemical contaminants that may be present in the environment, and released during Natural Events or from Human and Industrial Activities. Common environmental investigation scenarios are discussed together with the evidence collection strategies. Models to evaluate the transport and fate of pollutants in different environmental matrices and source/ pathway/receptor models are presented. Different methods for assessing risk (HHRA and ERA), with particular attention to the exposure assessment step, are discussed and compared (Tier I,II,III,IV level).
Ricevimento: giovedi ore 13-14 o 17-18 sede di Savona lunedi e mercoledi su prenotazione tramite richiesta per email (Genova).
