Aerosol Science & Engineering


This interactive and animated computer program is designed for aerosol science and engineering education in the introductory level. Each module in the program contains a narrative of the background/principles and a web calculator/simulator. Through the various modules, you'll be able to learn what aerosol is about, how aerosol moves, how we can measure or collect aerosol, how the aerosol in the atmosphere influences life, and how we can assess the health effects of aerosol.
