Introduction into the aerosol field. A course is designed for graduate students - non-specialists. The course gives the student an overview of the aerosol field and the methods used to study aerosols, and also of the approaches to model aerosol processes.
Aim of the course -
Last update: TAJ111 (17.04.2014)

The students will be able to:

1. Will understand the basics of aerosol mechanics and phenomena that have to be considered in aerosol systems, and will be able to estimate the importance of individual phenomena in a given situation.

2. Will be ready to work with particle size distribution data in various metrics - number, mass -and will understand the ways to calculate basic statistics of these distributions.

3. Will be given an overview on methods that serve to determine basic parameters of aerosol particles and their distributions and will be able to discern what method is suitable to solve a given task and why.
