Abstract

To reduce CO2 and NOx emission which affects earth environment and energy consumption during transportation, modal shift that means from trucks to rail and marine transportation shows a tendency to increase. According to the change of the diffusion situation of the vehicle exhaust emission by the modal shift, the influence of the carcinogen included in the emission changes too. In this research, it was tried to evaluate how the carcinogens risk to residents in a relatively wide area changed and moreover the effectiveness of the evaluation method for the risk assessment was shown.
