Assessment of Airborne Particles. Fundamentals, Applications, and Implications to Inhalation Toxicity.
Mercer, Thomas T., Ed.; And Others
Concern over chemical and radioactive particulate matter in industry and over rapidly increasing air pollution has stimulated research both on the properties of airborne particles and methods for assessing them and on their biological effects following inhalation. The Third Rochester International Conference on Environmental Toxicity was, therefore, designed to bring together the latest information in this field, to stimulate additional research on the relationship between aerosol properties and toxicity, and to provide information for more efficient planning of future research. Thirty-four scientists contributed to the conference proceedings through sessions on: (1) aerosol fundamentals, (2) aerosol production and measurement, (3) size analysis and shape factors, (4) disposition of inhaled aerosols, and (5) assessment of hazardous aerosols. Each presentation includes an abstract of the information, the full report, statistical and diagramatic data, bibliographic references, and resulting discussion. Subject-author indexes are compiled.
