Aerosol Physics and Chemistry

Lynn M. Russell

The course provides an introduction to the dynamics of suspended liquid and solid particles in gas media. Processes of particle nucleation, coagulation, condensation, deposition, and transport are examined. Atmospheric aerosols and particle activation in the supersaturated environment of clouds will be considered in addition to combustion, ceramic and pharmaceutical aerosol applications. Theoretical modeling approaches and experimental methods will be reviewed.
