This document summarizes several air quality measurement and modelling methods that can be used to estimate ground-level air pollutant concentrations and presents multiple approaches to monitoring ambient air pollution at different spatial and temporal scales. These methods are crucial for estimating population exposures, which can be defined as the product of the pollutant concentration and the time over which a person is in contact with this pollutant.
