About the Cover

Exposure to elevated carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations can cause an array of health problems or even death. Of increasing concern are CO-related poisonings and fatalities associated with recreational watercraft. The article featured on this issue’s cover, “Carbon Monoxide Exposure Potential Associated With the Use of Recreational Watercraft,” examined the significance of this public health hazard using a range of plausible exposures that were characterized by measuring instantaneous CO concentrations at 17 sampling locations on or near the stern of four recreational boats. Observed CO concentrations were highest in samples proximal to the engine exhaust manifold. Environmental health professionals should be aware of this hazard and examine controls that can reduce watercraft-related CO exposures to prevent injuries and fatalities.
