Modeling indoor air pollution from cookstove emissions in developing countries using a Monte Carlo single-box model

  title={Modeling indoor air pollution from cookstove emissions in developing countries using a Monte Carlo single-box model},
  author={Michael Johnson and Nick Lam and Simone Brant and Christen M. Gray and David Pennise}
A simple Monte Carlo single-box model is presented as a first approach toward examining the relationship between emissions of pollutants from fuel/cookstove combinations and the resulting indoor air pollution (IAP) concentrations. The model combines stove emission rates with expected distributions of kitchen volumes and air exchange rates in the developing country context to produce a distribution of IAP concentration estimates. The resulting distribution can be used to predict the likelihood… CONTINUE READING
