Abstract
Exposure to mineral aerosol is an occupational health hazard in mining and mineral processing industries because of the risk of developing pneumoconiosis. This chapter summarizes aerosol measurement technology currently used in the U.S. mining industry. Because of the regulatory aspect, the application of aerosol measurement technology has evolved in two areas: compliance measurements, which support regulatory programs, and research measurements, which aid in the development of new compliance measurement techniques and assist in determining the fundamental properties of mine aerosol.
