|Abstract||Respirable particle concentration measurements were performed indoors and outdoors at work (Technical University of Crete), indoors at home (an apartment in the vicinity of the University Campus) and during transition from the apartment to the Campus, and the opposite, and a detailed activity diary was kept. In addition, PM10 concentration and size distribution measurements were taken indoors and outdoors the apartment. The STEDOM decision support tool was used to estimate the exposure and dose at home, work and in transit for a healthy adult Caucasian female. The STEDOM tool and analysis of the measurement data and modelling results are presented. Enhanced exposure occurred at home whereas the average dose rate was higher at work.|
