Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


A timely presentation of current research, this book covers a multitude of topics on indoor, outdoor, and industrial aerosols, including aerosol measurement, deposition, particle size distribution, and biokinetic processes. The book discusses how the size, shape, and chemical properties of particles affect aerosol deposition in the lungs, possibly other organs, and their overall toxicity. It covers all relevant aspects of aerosols, from epidemiology to molecular biology, and emphasizes the importance of accurate aerosol measurement. Combining coverage of radioactive and non-radioactive aerosols, the editors give the book a unique and more complete perspective of how aerosols behave in the lungs.
