American Association for Aerosol Research

AST Journal

Established in 1982, Aerosol Science and Technology (AS&T), is the official journal of AAAR. It publishes the results of theoretical and experimental investigations into aerosol phenomena and closely related material as well as high-quality reports on fundamental and applied topics. AS&T is published monthly and sent to all members of the AAAR.

Paper Topics

Particularly appropriate subjects are particle motion in laminar or turbulent fluids; light-scattering phenomena, visibility, and atmospheric optics; electrical charging and precipitation; coagulation, size distribution, and aerosol dynamics; evaporation and condensation; cohesion and adhesion; diffusion; aerosol formation in flames; aerosol delivery of pharmaceuticals; nucleation phenomena; inertial impaction; cyclone collectors and centrifuges; and electrostatic precipitators.

Other topics of interest are aerosol filtration; aerosol-generation methods; sampling of airborne particles; measurement of physical and chemical properties; effects of aerosols on climate and other atmospheric processes; particle deposition in respiratory systems; health effects; radioactive aerosols; aerosol emissions from industrial processes; pollution control; and aerosols in the workplace.
