Aerosol

Particulate matter, solid or liquid, larger than a molecule but small enough to remain suspended in the atmosphere. Natural sources include salt particles from sea spray, dust and clay particles as a result of weathering of rocks, both of which are carried upward by the wind. Aerosols can also originate as a result of human acti...

Aerosol

This is a very broad term applied to any suspension of solid or liquid particles in a gas. Particle diameters may range from about 0.001 micrometres to about 100 micrometres. Mass concentrations may range from 10-9 to 10 grams per cubic metre of gas.

Aerosol

Air suspension of solid or liquid particles having a volume median diameter of less than 50 µm. Aerosol sprays are principally used for drift spraying against flying insects. The small size of the droplets or particles allow entry to the body via the respiratory tract and readily contaminates clothing, skin and eyes.

Aerosol

1. Small droplets or particles suspended in the atmosphere, typically containing sulfur. They are usually emitted naturally (e.g. in volcanic eruptions) and as the result of anthropogenic (human) activities such as burning fossil fuels. 2. The pressurized gas used to propel substances out of a container.

aerosol

Particulate material, other than water or ice, in the atmosphere ranging in size from approximately 10x-3 to larger than 10x2 ´m in radius. Aerosols are important in the atmosphere as nuclei for the condensation of water droplets and ice crystals, as participants in various chemical cycles, and as absorbers and scatterers of solar radiation, the...

aerosol

Aerosols are colloidal dispersions of liquid or solid particles in a gas, as in a mist or smoke. The commonly used aerosol sprays contain an inert propellant liquefied under pressure. The pressure of the gas causes the mixture to be released as a fine spray (aerosol) or foam (aerogel) when a valve is opened.
