How to estimate exposure to fine particles (PM2.5) in the Finnish population? Only outdoor sources are considered here.
Use source-receptor matrix (e.g. the so-called PILTTI matrix) to estimate exposure levels and population sizes around a given source point. Georeference and source strength must be given. The concentrations per unit emission around the source and population density across Finland are already known in the system.
- Based on Piltti source-receptor matrix.
Emission and city area locations
- A previous table about emission locations in Kuopio was moved to Kuopio energy production and that about Kuopio city district was moved to Building stock in Kuopio.
Intake fractions of PM
- A previous table by Humbert et al 2011 was moved to Intake fractions of PM.
