The issue also includes several HOT articles from M. Feroz Khan on monitoring 210Po and 210Pb levels in crabs near a new nuclear power station, Timothy Van Renterghem on using consumer microphones to measure noise pollution, and an article from Kenneth Fent on the exposure of firefighters to VOCs from vehicle fires. This paper is also on our cover and is highlighted in Chemistry World – you can read the article here.
The other HOT article highlighted on the cover is from Martin Harper and colleagues from NIOSH, USA, looking at the challenge of accurately measuring personal exposure to airborne contaminants.
