Increased attention on the occupational health risks associated with the industrial manufacture and use of nanotechnology make this presentation of the latest research in the field of aerosol science extremely timely. The book covers indoor, outdoor, and industrial aerosols, including aerosol measurement, deposition, particle size distribution, and biokinetic processes. The book covers all relevant aspects of aerosols, from epidemiology to molecular biology, and emphasizes the importance of accurate aerosol measurement. The authors discuss the effects of radioactive aerosols and focus on the health effects of specific aerosols, such as diesel aerosols and ultrafine particles.
