Abstract: Urban particulate air pollution has been associated with adverse health effects in epidemiological as well as experimental studies. The overall aim of this thesis was to characterize environmental exposure to fine particles (PM2.5), black smoke (BS) and particulate trace elements among the general adult population in Gothenburg. Exposure was assessed during 24 hours by personal sampling on 30 subjects, along with parallel residential indoor and outdoor measurements and fixed-site urban backgrou... more
