  1. Atmospheric lead pollution in KwaZulu/Natal, South Africa.

    Article - En anglais

    Average atmospheric concentrations of lead were found to be 1.8,0.86,0.56 and 0.44 mug m-3 in industrial, commercial, park/beach and residential areas of Durban.

    Exposure to these elevated levels would represent a health hazard to many children in the city.

    Lower lead concentrations were found in a local township (0.26 mug m-3) and rural (0.03 mug m-3) areas of Natal Province.

    The study provided background data that can be used to follow the trajectory of change in atmospheric lead levels now that lead-free gasoline has been introduced into the country.
