Abstract:

A computer program that converts laser spectrometer LAS-X particle-size data to total aerosol volume has been developed. Sources of errors and uncertainties in LAS-X data have been evaluated. Because aerosol volume is directly proportional to mass, the derived aerosol volumes can be compared with sodium chloride NaCl aerosol-mass data from a flame photometer. Author
