Monitoring Aerosol Elemental Composition in Particle Size Fractions for Predicting Human Respiratory Uptake

Desaedeleer, Georges G; Winchester, John W and Akselsson, Roland LU (1977) In Nuclear Instruments & Methods in Physics Research. Section A: Accelerators, Spectrometers, Detectors, and Associated Equipment 142(1-2). p.97-99
Abstract
Proton induced X-ray emission analysis is useful in measuring changes in particle size distribution of trace elements on exposure of aerosol to the human lung environment and deposition in the air-ways. PIXE analysis is also useful in detecting variations in particle size distributions of elements as they occur in the atmosphere. For the case of lead aerosol along a highway, it is shown that the extent and site of respiratory deposition of particles depend on their size, and the size distribution may vary under urban atmospheric conditions sufficiently to affect respiratory deposition efficiency.
