Exposure to asphalt fumes is widely recognized as a potential occupational health concern for paving and roofing workers. Two studies suggest that asphalt fumes generated in the laboratory are carcinogenic to mice. In this study, asphalt fume condensate (AFC) was collected from the head space of an operating hot mix asphalt storage tank and from a(More)
Three types of solid-phase chemical exposure sampling media: cellulose, polyurethane foam, and XAD-2, were analyzed for 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and the amine salts of 2,4-D. Individual samples were extracted into acidified methanol, and the extracts were analyzed via liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry using electrospray ionization(More)
A simple algorithm based on computational estimates of spectral feature amplitudes in hyperspectral images is described for mapping oxygen delivery in tissue. Features are determined from contiguous image bands spanning the prominent absorption wavelengths of hemoglobin. Pixel values along the z-axis at each image coordinate establish a spectral curve.
