Short summary
This original interpretation and application of environmental databases combines biomonitoring and atmospheric field data and state-of-the-art chemistry transport models to study one of the most carcinogenic atmospheric pollutants, benzo[a]pyrene (BaP). A comparison of ways to estimate air concentrations of BaP from its levels in vegetation is also a strong asset of this study. The whole methodology proposed here is versatile and can easily be applied to other regions and chemicals of interest.
