Assessing Indoor Pollution and Its Impacts on the Human Health

Dear Colleagues,

Indoor air pollution is a menace to human health, causing diverse health outcomes, and the COVID-19 pandemic crisis has increased the awareness of this topic’s importance. Several pollutants can result in indoor air pollution, and they can be generated indoors due occupants’ activities and include carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM), aerosol, biological pollutants, and many others. Thus, it is of critical importance to identify their main sources and concentrations and to conceive strategies for the control increasing indoor air quality (IAQ). Identification and discussion of health issues related to an IAQ decline, as well as novel solutions for IAQ monitoring, will be also covered as hot topics in this Topic.
