Concentration ratios of metals between house dust and road dust

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingsConference contribution

Abstract

The transport of soil adhering to footwear and the deposition of atmospheric dust are the two main migration pathways of inorganic contaminants indoors. Additional dust is generated by indoor activities. Available literature data and own data were used to calculate the ratio of the concentrations in house dust and road dust for various elements. These ratios can provide an indication for relevant indoor emission of specific elements.
