Bridging science and application in aerosol measurment.
Aerosol measurement: principles, techniques, and applications. Willeke K, Baron PA, eds. New York: Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1993 Jan; :3-7
An aerosol is an assembly of liquid or solid particles suspended in a gaseous medium (e.g., air) long enough to enable observation and measurement. The need to measure aerosols has increased dramatically in recent years. This need has arisen in several disciplines. While a lot of information is available in the published literature, the scientists and practitioners making aerosol measurements in one application may have little or no awareness of the knowledge and experience gained in other applications.
