Science: Smoke Aerosols and How They Act in the Environment: Fine Particulate Pollution

Preface by Dr. Wayne Ott, Stanford University March, 2001. (or pdf format)

An Introduction to Wood Smoke Particles by Mary J. Rozenberg, Dec. 2001 (or pdf format)

John A. Cooper's 1980 paper on residential wood burning was the first paper on the subject that we have seen and it seems to have said it all. Scanned full text of Cooper's paper.

Constituents of Wood Smoke

Specific Particulate Sources such as Wood Stoves, Outdoor Wood Boilers, Outdoor Fire Pits and Wood Burning Power Plants. Also included is information about the smoke and dust occurring as a result of the 9/11 attack.

Lowering air pollution in Southern California and the San Joaquin Valley would save more lives annually than ending all motor vehicle fatalities in the two regions, according to a new

EPA Report showing that certified wood stoves deteriorate over time.

Exposure to Particulates (PM2.5) and Wood Smoke

Haber's Rule: Haber noted that exposure to a low concentration of a poisonous gas for a long time often had the same effect (death) as exposure to a high concentration for a short time. new
