The exposure to environmental pollution must be considered in the epidemiology of many diseases, and is an important determinant of quality of life. However, data on levels of exposure are rare. Mapping must consequently rely on indirect approaches involving the modelling of exposure levels of risk. This chapter examines some of the approaches that may be used and the problems they encounter. These include integrated modelling, concentration mapping, dispersion modelling, and emission mapping.

Keywords: environmental pollution; exposure levels; exposure mapping; modelling
