Summary

Decisions that impact human health are made all the time. Quantitative Environmental Risk Analysis for Human Health provides readers with the basic skills and knowledge needed to manage, evaluate, or perform environmental risk assessments and risk analyses for both chemicals and radioactive contaminants.

This book explains the fundamental methodology for analyzing environmental risk with examples for selected applications.  Key elements of the environmental risk methodology include: (1) source term and release characterization, (2) migration of contaminants in various media, (3) exposure assessment, (4) dose-response evaluation, (5) risk characterization, and (6) risk management.  Also included is an introduction to uncertainty analysis and environmental laws and regulations.  This book provides students with the basic skills and knowledge needed to manage, evaluate, or perform environmental risk assessments and risk analyses.

The new edition updates many chapters while providing new coverage based on author feedback. Some of these enhancements include a better transition from the analytical methods described in the current text to computer-based methods commonly used by practitioners as well as including better links to web-based documents, data, and tools. The second edition continues the development of environmental risk analysis, including methods, data, applications, and uses for decision-making.
