Intake Fraction Model

Purpose 

The intake fraction (iF) quantifies aggregate air-pollutant exposures attributable to a broad range of point, line and area sources. In order to assess the consequences of the spatial association between energy emissions and exposed populations for lifecycle and other impact assessments, EAEI scientists have developed a spreadsheet database that can calculate iF at national, state, county and census track resolution. The database used source-receptor (S-R) relationships derived from the US Environmental Protection Agency

Audience 
Broad range of regulatory agencies, policy makers, environmental health scientists, life-cycle assessors
