Aerosol measurement: principles, techniques, and applications, third edition. Kulkarni P, Baron PA, Willeke K, eds. Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley and Sons, Inc, 2011 Jan; :635-654
Measurement of radioactive aerosols involves most of the standard tools of aerosol science and technology, as well as a number of specialized techniques that take advantage of the unique physical properties of radioactivematerials. Instruments and techniques for characterizing radioactive aerosols have been described extensively in numerous manuscripts, books, and standards. Detailed review and application of this information, as well as the development of new techniques and applications, continue to occupy the careers of many aerosol scientists and health protection professionals. This chapter provides an overview of the principles, techniques, and applications of measuring radioactive aerosols. Information needed for a basic understanding is presented, and several newer measurement techniques are described.
