  • Allows users to customize exposure parameters (e.g., age of people exposed, quantity of soil/water/fish ingested, number of days exposed (arms, legs, feet, hands, arms, torso, head). (TYPO)
  • Incoporates sophisticated computational algorithms to calculate exposure doses for skin contact scenarios
  • Calculates cancer risk estimations for chemicals containing cancer risk factors.
  • Displays ATSDR and EPA health comparison values
  • Assist reviewers of brownfields/Land Reuse data
