Potential hazards of air pollutant emissions from UOG operations on the respiratory health of children and infants

Children are known to be at a greater risk from exposure to air pollutants, which can impair lung function and neurodevelopment, or exacerbate existing conditions, such as asthma, because the respiratory system is particularly vulnerable during development in utero, the postnatal period, and early childhood. Existing epidemiology studies document the impact of air pollutant exposure …

Air concentrations of volatile compounds near oil and gas production: a community-based exploratory study

Air concentrations of potentially dangerous compounds and chemical mixtures, e. g. benzene, formaldehyde and hydrogen sulfide, are frequently present near oil and gas production sites in dangerous concentrations. Community-based research can provide an important supplement to state air quality monitoring programs. Bibliography: Gregg P Macey, Ruth Breech, Mark Chernaik, Caroline Cox, Denny Larson, Deb Thomas …
