This paper describes the aerosol regional doses deposited in the human respiratory system in a traffic environment. Cumulative and instant doses are calculated for submicrometric and ultrafine particles (UFPs) deposited in the lobes of the lung described by a stochastic model (60th percentile). After 1 h exposure about 6.6×1010 particles, almost entirely UFPs, are deposited into the respiratory system. Particles are preferentially deposited in right than in left lung lobes.
