Techniques are being developed for measuring the mass concentration of respirable diesel exhaust aerosol found in underground coal mines. This effort is in response to the current concerns associated with worker exposure to diesel exhaust and the prospect of pending industry regulation. The University of Minnesota and U.S. Bureau of Mines have been involved in cooperative studies over the past 4 years to study size selective sampler techniques to measure the respirable mass concentrations of diesel exhaust and mine dust aerosols in underground coal mines. Results from these studies have been used to develop design and performance critieria for a personal diesel exhaust aerosol sampler.
