[ NIEHS Special Lecture ] PM2.5的來源、暴露及健康風險

本次演講將從改善公共衛生的角度介紹兩種識別PM2.5來源並評估其對健康風險影響的方法。
(1) 受體建模:將結合使用各種模型在臺灣識別出的 PM2.5 來源比例概念。 還將討論其在健康風險評估中的應用。
(2) 土地利用迴歸:通過分析從地理信息系統中提取的空氣監測數據和環境變量,可以識別影響PM2.5分佈的來源。 將介紹結合衛星數據和機器學習技術的最新進展。

Integrated analysis of source-specific risks for PM2.5-bound metals in urban, suburban, rural, and industrial areas

We found that the concentrations of Fe, Zn, V, Cu, and Mn (industry-related metals) were higher at the industrial site (Kaohsiung) and Ba, Cr, Ni, Mo, and Co (traffic-related metals) were higher at the urban site (Taipei). The rural site (Hualian) had good air quality, with low PM2.5 and metal concentrations. Most metal concentrations were higher during the cold season for all study sites, except for the rural.

Exposure profiles of workers from indium tin oxide target manufacturing and recycling factories in Taiwan

Indium tin oxide exposure poses a potential health risk, but the exposure assessment in occupational setting remains incomplete and continues to be a significant challenge. The varying levels of relationship noted between indium exposure and the levels of P–In and U–In among workers with different work types suggested that setting the exposure limits among different work types is warranted.
