182.616.01 ADVANCED TOPICS IN AIRBORNE PARTICLES
- Jana Kesavan
Covers advanced topics in aerosol technology that are important in environmental health sciences, including aerosol generation methodology and equipment, coagulation, condensation, evaporation, electrical properties, optical properties, and aerosol sampling. Students visit an aerosol laboratory at Edgewood Chemical Biological Center that has many pieces of aerosol generation and sampling equipment, chambers, and wind tunnels.
Upon completing this course, students will be able to: - Describe aerosol generation methods and equipment for laboratory testing of aerosols - Describe aerosol sampling methods and equipment and their applications - Evaluate the effects of charge, coagulation, condensation, and evaporation on airborne particles generation and sampling - Explain the basic concepts of a specialized aerosol characterization technique utilizing light scattering and other optical properties of aerosols
