Aerobiological Engineering is a website about healthy indoor environments, how to design them, how to remediate them, and how to build them. Information and links are provided here to assist engineers, biologists, scientists, researchers, and laypersons in making educated decisions about solving indoor aerobiological problems and controlling airborne diseases.
Airborne diseases affect everyone and are a daily threat in home and work environments. Allergens, mold spores, mycotoxins, pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and other bioaerosols collectively impact human health.
Many solutions to indoor aerobiological problems are available today, including air filtration, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), ozone, pulsed light, ionization, passive solar exposure, and other new technologies. Each problem is often unique and evaluation of the problem is essential to developing a successful resolution.
Investigation of the source of particular aerobiological problems is the first step towards solving the problem. This may involve inspection of facilities, air sampling, surface sampling, or epidemiological surveys.
Aerobiological Engineering Handbook: A Guide to Airborne Disease Control Technologies is a one-stop source of all necessary and state-of-the-art information for the development of solutions to aerobiological problems. It is available through McGraw-Hill.com, Amazon.com, and other leading booksellers.
