Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This work constitutes the first report on the concentration of airborne respirable fibers, and their length distribution in different groups of homes in Sosnowiec, Poland. The measurements have been made by using the MIE Laser Fiber Monitor FM-7400. Mean concentration level of the respirable fibers, longer than 5 microns, ranged from 350 m-3 through 910 m-3 up to 1020 m-3 in the homes located in suburban areas, near the busy streets, and in the buildings covered with asbestos-cement sheets, respectively. These results indicate the outdoor asbestos-containing materials as the main sources of airborne fibers inside the Sosnowiec dwellings.
