9780471784920: Aerosol Measurement: Principles, Techniques, and Applications

In recent years, industry has become increasingly interested in modern aerosol measurement methods, not only to protect the health of their workers but also to augment productivity and thereby gain competitive advantage. Aerosol Measurement: Principles, Techniques, and Applications, Second Edition offers scientists and practitioners the fundamental principles used in deciding which aerosol properties to measure and how to interpret the results.

Divided into three parts, the material reviews the physical understanding of aerosols, covers specific instrumental techniques, and explains applications in fields ranging from health care to mining and upper-atmosphere research. Leading experts contribute to the review of such areas as direct-reading techniques, bioaerosol sampling, indoor air evaluations, industrial aerosol processing, and measurement in semiconductor clean rooms. Plus, all the chapters in this latest edition have been updated and some have been rewritten by new authors. Two new chapters have been added: one on historical aspects of aerosol measurements and the other on real-time single particle analysis.

From the Back Cover:

The most comprehensive text on state-of-the-art aerosol measurement methods

Drawing on the know-how of numerous leading experts, Aerosol Measurement: Principles, Techniques, and Applications, Third Edition provides a solid grasp of aerosol measurement fundamentals and presents a wide variety of measurement techniques and their real-world applications. Aerosol measurement has assumed critical importance in many fields including industrial hygiene, public health and epidemiology, atmospheric science, climate research, material science, powder technology, nanotechnology, filtration, particle toxicology, and medicine. As a result, the need to conduct reliable aerosol measurement has increased dramatically in recent years, making this new edition more valuable than ever.

The revised and expanded third edition includes many new and developing topics such as measurement of macromolecules and sub-3 nanometer particles, new particle formation, advances in aerosol mass spectrometry, electrospray and its applications, electrical-sensing aerosol instruments, satellite-based aerosol measurement, and health effects of nanoparticles.

About the Author:

Klaus Willeke, Ph. D., was trained in Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University and has been a Professor of Environmental Health at the University of Cincinnati since 1981. He has authored or co-authored over 100 journal publications on the physical and biological aspects of aerosol generation, sampling and analysis. Several of the concepts generated in his Aerosol Research and Exposure Assessment Laboratory have been incorporated into commercially available instruments. He is a consultant to major US companies and has lectured widely in America, Europe and Asia. About 30 scientists from other institutions have spent a year or more with him and his international team of researchers.

Paul A. Baron, Ph.D., is a Physical Scientist at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Physical Sciences and Engineering Division. Currently a member of the Board of Directors of the American Association for Aerosol Research and Associated Editor of the Aerosol Science and Technology Journal, Dr. Baron has authored or co-authored over 60 publications involving fiber measurement or other aspects of aerosol science. The Outstanding Aerosol Paper Award from the Aerosol Technology Committee of the American Industrial Hygiene Association was awarded to Dr. Baron in 1990 and 1993 and to Dr. Willeke in 1993 in 1993; they received the award jointly in 1992.
