Overview

The #1 guide to aerosol science and technology —now better than ever

Since 1982, Aerosol Technology has been the text of choice among students and professionals who need to acquire a thorough working knowledge of modern aerosol theory and applications. Now revised to reflect the considerable advances that have been made over the past seventeen years across a broad spectrum of aerosol-related application areas — from occupational hygiene and biomedical technology to microelectronics and pollution control —this new edition includes:
*A chapter on bioaerosols
*New sections on resuspension, transport losses, respiratory deposition models, and fractal characterization of particles
*Expanded coverage of atmospheric aerosols, including background aerosols and urban aerosols
*A section on the impact of aerosols on global warming and ozone depletion.

Aerosol Technology, Second Edition also features dozens of new, fully worked examples drawn from a wide range of industrial and research settings, plus new chapter-end practice problems to help readers master the material quickly.
