At this time when regulatory agencies are accepting and actively encouraging probabilistic approaches and the attribution of overall uncertainty among inputs to support Value of Information analyses, a comprehensive sourcebook on methods for addressing variability and uncertainty in exposure analysis is sorely needed. This need is adroitly met inProbabilistic Techniques in Exposure Assessment. A host of expert contributors provide a straightforward introduction to the practical tools for addressing variability and uncertainty in support of environmental and human health decision making. 151 graphs, plots, charts, and figures supplement a broad range of detailed and practical examples.
Every day we are exposed to situations that are beyond our control. It doesn't matter whether you're an elderly grandmother or a soldier fighting in Iraq. It doesn't matter whether you're a war veteran, cop, medical examiner or an EMT. At any time, you could be pushed over the edge. If I had known that my job was going to expose me to such horrific things, I could have saved myself. This book goes into graphic detail about my experiences with crime scenes, assaults, death threats, homicides, drugs and sex crimes. I will also tell you about workplace harassment and my recovery. When I was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) everything seemed so hopeless. The flashbacks, hypervigilant behavior, sleepless nights and paranoia were all consuming. The scenes described are worse than the scariest movie you will ever see and, quite simply, can cause people to be Overexposed.
