Abstract:

The study of bioaerosol fate and transport has recently gained more attention due to the recognized importance of both indoor and outdoor events that have been shown to impact applicable populations. In this Chapter current thinking and research are presented in the topic areas of hydrodynamic and kinetic forces affecting fate and transport; environmental condition effects on viability; bioaerosol transport and viability modeling; and microorganism inactivation and repair mechanisms.
