BREAM 2 Improvements in Modelling Bystander and Resident Exposure to Pesticide Spray Drift

The BREAM (Bystander and Resident Exposure Assessment Model) (Kennedy et al., 2012) for bystander and resident exposure to spray drift from boom spray- ers has recently been incorporated into the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) guidance for determining non-dietary exposures of humans to plant protection products (EFSA, 2014). This paper investigates new approaches for characterizing the ‘Collection Efficiency’ of the human body
