Mickey Gunter's material for the NAGT workshop on Geology & Health

(Mickey Gunter, Geology, University of Idaho, last updated Feb 6, 2004.)

This page contains information on health effects of mineral dusts, mainly for use in the NAGT workshop on Geology & Health. There are three basic parts to the page: 1) full-length manuscripts that provide both background information for the meeting and examples of in-depth research projects that we've done , 2) abstracts giving an overview of some of our work over the past couple of years, and 3) links to other pertinent sites, suggested readings, definitions of some of the terminology used in inhaled mineral dust studies, and some possible research projects.
