Dear Colleagues,
Environmental toxins can expose to human/ecosystem and induce exposure risk through multi-pathway owing to their transport and transformation among environmental multi-media such as ambient air, soil, surface water, etc. Unfortunately, after the long-time research, the present advances in human technology have not reduced that risk effectively. Actually, increased industrialization and urbanization of the world, the enhanced demand for resources, and the advent of new technologies have increased the risk of exposure to some extent. In recent decades, environmental monitoring, risk assessment and sustainable management are established as valuable tools to support the national or regional quantitative regulatory system and administrative decision making for environmental toxins’ pollution. Consequently, the identification of chemical hazards, estimation of exposure, evaluation of the associated risks, and the introduction of management and control measures are all vital to ensure the health and safety of individuals and biodiversity as well as environmental quality. Thus, this topical issue will encourage and highlight the new or improved approaches, models, and theories that either have been applied or are under development to moving the field forward in monitoring, assessing and managing environmental risk posed by environmental toxins from multi-pathway exposure in environmental multimedia. Research papers, analytical reviews, case studies, conceptual frameworks, and policy-relevant articles are solicited. The Guest Editors will select high quality research to proceed with blind peer reviews. Reviewers will be selected among researchers active in the field, whose works are present in international databases.
