This note addresses
the challenges of defining a relationship between exposure to environmental
chemicals and human disease. Topics covered include epidemiological approaches
to understanding disease causation, biostatistical methods, evaluation of human
exposure to chemicals, and their internal distribution, metabolism, reactions
with cellular components, and biological effects, and qualitative and
quantitative health risk assessment methods used in the U.S. as bases for

overall goal of this book is to gain an understanding of the fundamental
chemical processes that are central to a range of important environmental
problems and to utilize this knowledge in making critical evaluations of these
The main objective of this book is to show how one can apply simple
principles of physics and chemistry to describe a complex system such as the
atmosphere, and how one can reduce the complex system to build models. Topics
covered includes: Measures Of Atmospheric Composition, Atmospheric Pressure,
Simple Models, Atmospheric Transport, The Continuity Equation, Geochemical
Cycles, The Greenhouse Effect, Aerosols, Chemical Kinetics, Stratospheric Ozone,
Oxidizing Power Of The Troposphere and Ozone Air Pollution.
