HumanExposure/SHEDSDevel: The SHEDS-HT model for estimating human exposure to chemicals.

The ShedsHT R package runs the Stochastic Human Exposure and Dose Simulation-High Throughput screening model which estmates human exposure to a wide range of chemicals.The people in SHEDS-HT are simulated individuals who collectively form a representative sample of the target population, as chosen by the user. The model is cross-sectional, with just one simulated day (24 hours) for each simulated person, although the selected day is not necessarily the same from one person to another. SHEDS-HT is stochastic, which means that many inputs are sampled randomly from user-specified distributions that are intended to capture variability. In the SHEDS series of models, variability and uncertainty are typically handled by a two-stage Monte Carlo process, but SHEDS-HT currently has a single stage and does not directly estimate uncertainty.
