Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The urban environment has long been associated with community health risks. However, quantifying environmental exposure for measuring urban environmental quality is always a challenge, since environmental components of the complex system across the urban environment are interacting with each other. Moreover, failure to quantify the environmental quality can result in a problematic estimation of environmental health risks.

Therefore, this Special Issue aims to target the following topics:

1) improvement of exposure assessments for measuring urban environmental quality;

2) linking indoor and outdoor environmental exposures by modelling;

3) novel design to spatially or spatio-temporally estimate urban environmental quality;

4) application of community health assessment with improved data for urban environmental quality.
