Example text

In the first two steps, the analyst assesses the potential hazards of exposure and estimates the dose–response. Next, the potential exposures are described and estimated. Finally, the analyst combines the estimates of hazard and exposure to quantify the potential risks. Each of these steps combines numerous assumptions that allow the risk assessor to extrapolate from the available data to potential real-world scenarios. A detailed description of the art and science of risk characterization is beyond the scope of this book; the reader should simply be aware that the process can reflect both scientific thinking and subjective judgment [78], and that in consequence risk assessments can produce a variety of estimates of risk from the same data.

Although these winds typically blow at 129 to 225 kilometers per hour (80 to 140 miles per hour), they can reach speeds of more than 443 kilometers per hour (275 miles per hour). The two primary jet streams in each hemisphere blow to the east: the Polar jet stream located near latitude 45°, and the Subtropical jet stream located near 30°. The location and speed of these winds vary seasonally [60,61]. Two primary mechanisms account for pollutant transport. The first tends to act on a regional scale; the second, global.
