  1. Accumulation of environmental risks to human health : geographical differences in the Netherlands.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    RISK 97 International Conference. Amsterdam, NLD, 1997/10/21.

    The project'Accumulation of environmental risks'was aimed at developing methods to illustrate the geographical differences in risks to human health due to several types of environmental pollution.

    The following risks were considered : possible major accidents, radioactive substances and radiation, several carcinogenic substances in air and environmental noise, with the methods used based on the risk concept implemented in the Netherlands environmental policy.

    Starting with information on sources and emissions of several contaminants, their dispersion in air and human exposure to them were calculated, and the effects on human health estimated.

    The results were presented in a number of national maps.

    In spite of the complexity of discussions on risk-related subjects, applying the methods developed during the project has been shown to lead to insight into the geographical distribution and the comparison of different kinds of risk.

    The maps on possible major accidents and noise showed high risks on a local scale, whereas the risks due to radiation and substances were found to be more evenly distributed over large parts of the Netherlands.
