Chemical exposure monitoring

Abstract

Monitoring data are critical factors in an exposure assessment and thus are important elements in quantitative evaluations of hazard and risk. Studies in laboratory animals indicate actual or potential adverse biological activity (toxi- city) of a chemical while monitoring data are used to assess the exposure of selected human and environmental components to the chemical. Data from monitoring activities also are useful in determining the environmental pathways through which pesticide chemical residues move from their application orbit. Further, monitoring studies contribute substantial information about the intermediate and final environmental fate of pesticides and other toxic chemicals.
