aerosol particle measurement Books

  • Physical and Chemical Properties of Aerosols

    An aerosol is a suspension of fine particles in a gas, usually air, and is generally taken to include both solid and liquid particles with dimensions ranging from a few nanometres up to around 100 micrometres in diameter. Aerosol sicence is the study of the physics and chemistry of aerosol behaviour and this includes techniques of generating ...

  • Understanding Radioactive Aerosols and Their Measurement

    This book is an introduction to radioactivity and aerosols for the scientifically literate reader with little or no previous exposure to either of these subjects. It provides a step-by-step introduction to radioactive aerosols from the physical science perspective, with coverage of such topics as indoor radon decay products, radioactive ...

  • Dimethylsulphide: Oceans, Atmosphere and Climate (1992)

    Dimethylsulphide (DMS), emitted by marine phytoplankton, is the second most important source of atmospheric sulphur, after anthropogenic SO2. In the atmosphere, DMS is transformed into condensable acidic sulphur products and, through gas-to-particle conversion, it becomes the most important natural source of atmospheric sulphate aerosols. ...

  • Microphysics of Clouds and Precipitation

    This book provides the most comprehensive treatment to date of the microphysical processes which lead to cloud and precipitation formation. Emphasis is placed on presenting a quantitative description of the various mechanisms (e.g. nucleation, diffusional growth and evaporation, collisional growth and breakup) which lead to the formation of ...

  • Aerosols Handbook: Measurement, Dosimetry, and Health Effects

    As more attention is dedicated to understanding the occupational health risks associated with the industrial manufacture and use of nanotechnology, Aerosols Handbook: Measurement, Dosimetry, and Health Effects is a timely presentation of the latest research in the field of aerosol ...

  • Optics of Cosmic Dust

    Initially this book focuses on the chemical and morphological properties of dust particles, both cosmological and terrestrial, and some of techniques used to gain information. When light or other electromagnetic radiation interacts with dust or other particles it is scattered in all directions. The scattering interaction are relevant to many ...

  • Air Pollution XV

    Publishing papers from the Fifteenth International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution, this book features articles on the latest developments in air pollution analysis and control. It covers the topic areas of Air pollution modelling; Air quality management; Emission studies; Monitoring and laboratory studies; ...

  • Scattering from Model Nonspherical Particles

    The scattering of electromagnetic radiation by nonspherical particles has become an increasingly important research topic over the past 20 years. Instead of handling anisotropic particles of arbitrary shape, the authors consider the more amenable problem of aggregates of spherical particles. This is often a very satisfactory approach as the ...

  • Composite Materials: Fatigue and Fracture, 3rd Volume

    38 papers by authors from universities, government, and industry give a balanced presentation on these subjects: • Matrix Cracking and Delamination• Interlaminar Fracture Toughness• Delamination Analysis• Strength and Impact• Fatigue and Fracture. For aircraft designers, researchers in aerospace materials, composite ...

  • The Forgotten Pollution

    The increasing pace of industrialization throughout the world has brought with it a serious and ever increasing threat from air pollution. It is true that this threat is being taken seriously, and that many responsible research workers, government advisors and others are working towards its reduction. But air pollution seems to have something ...

  • Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere for Environmental Security

    Recent ecological disasters make human beings aware of changes in the Earth’s climate. At the present time anthropogenic activities lead to the emission of greenhouse gases, pollutants, aerosols and ozone depleting substances and the scientific community in general feels responsible for understanding how changes in atmospheric chemistry can affect ...

  • Boreal Forest and Climate Change

    An active co-operation between forest ecologists and physicist has continued for decades at the University of Helsinki. These scientists have the common vision that material and energy fluxes are the key to a proper understanding of natural phenomena. The authors of this book come from very different disciplines: tree ecophysiology, silviculture, ...

  • Laser Remote Sensing

    Information on recent progress in laser remote sensor (LIDAR) technology can be found scattered throughout numerous journal articles and conference proceedings, but until now there has been no work that summarizes recent advancements and achievements in the field in a detailed format.Laser Remote Sensing provides an up-to-date, comprehensive ...

  • The Cassini-Huygens Mission

    The joint NASA-ESA Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn is the most ambitious planetary mission since the VEGA mission to Venus and Halley in 1985/86 and the Viking arbiters and landers to Mars in 1976.This volume describes the mission, the orbiter spacecraft, the Titan atmospheric probe and the mission design in articles written by its project ...
