Abstract
This chapter reviews current projects and discusses the future direction of the Bureau of Mines respirable dust measurement and monitoring program. Projects presently underway include the development of a mining machine-mounted respirable dust monitor based on light scattering; the development of direct-indicating personal dust exposure monitors, one using light scattering and the other using a tapered element oscillating microbalance technique; a feasibility study of a light reflectance technique for measuring the mass of dust deposited on a filter; an in-house evaluation of various existing dust monitors; and two projects related to the determination of the quartz content of dust samples. The technical aspects of the various developments are not discussed in detail; rather, the philosophy and rationale behind the development or investigation are explained. Also, the chapter points out the need for and nature of a planned respirable coal mine dust monitoring strategy study.
