Aerosol Sampling
Science, Standards, Instrumentation and Applications
by James H. Vincent

Aerosol Sampling provides a comprehensive account of the important field of aerosol sampling as it is applied to the measurement of aerosols that are ubiquitous in occupational and living environments, both indoor and outdoor.

Aerosol Sampling:

  • describes the current knowledge of the physical science that underpins the process of aerosol sampling.
  • presents the basis of standards of aerosols, including in particular the link with human exposure by inhalation.
  • covers the development of practical aerosol sampling instrumentation, and how technical designs and methods have evolved over the years in order that aerosol sampling may be carried out in a manner matching the health-related and other criteria that have been proposed as parts of standards.
  • describes how a wide range of aerosol sampling instruments have performed when they have been applied in the field in both occupational and ambient atmospheric environments, including how different instruments, nominally intended to measure the same aerosol fraction, compare when used side-by-side in the real world.
