The use of probit expressions in the assessment of acute population impact of toxic releases.
Problem Clouds. Symposium. Chester (GBR), 1990-06-14.
The basic concepts of probit analysis are described, and some of the implications of the scheme are explored in connection with characteristics of exposures in the open atmosphere that differ from the exposure characteristics used in toxicity tests on animals.
In particular, the effects of fluctuating and intermittent exposures are considered, using chlorine and methyl isocyanate to illustrate the implied modification to the estimate of response based on probits developed for steady exposures.
A scheme is described for comparing the performance of different probits.
(as there are numerous published probit expressions for many of the substances of interest).
