Summary note:
"The book covers a multitude of topics on indoor, outdoor, and industrial aerosols, including aerosol measurement, deposition, particle size distribution, and biokinetic processes. Where harmful exposure to ultrafine particles may occur through inhalation, dermal contact, and ingestion, the text discusses how the size, shape, and chemical properties of particles affect aerosol deposition in the lungs - and possibly other organs - and the overall toxicity. The authors cover all relevant aspects of aerosols, from epidemiology to molecular biology, and emphasize the importance of accurate aerosol measurement. They use extensive field research to illustrate the health effects of radioactive aerosols, diesel aerosols, and ultrafine particles."--BOOK JACKET.
