“This book will be mainly of interest to research scientists,…,it should be easily intelligible to air conditioning engineers, and to architects interested in environmental design who have mastered the principles of the physical and biological sciences.”

Henry J. Cowan, University of Sydney, Australia
Architectural Science Review

“In conclusion, this is an excellent account and is the first such book to appear dealing with particles in indoor air.”

About the Author

Lidia Morawska is an Associate Professor at the School of Physical and Chemical Sciences, Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia and the Director of the International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health at QUT. She conducts fundamental and applied research in the interdisciplinary field of air quality and its impact on human health and the environment with a specific focus on fine and ultrafine particles.
Professor Morawska is a physicists and received her doctorate at the Jagiellonian University, Poland for research on radon and its progeny. Prior to joining QUT she spent several years in Canada conducting research first at McMaster University in Hamilton and later at the University of Toronto. Lidia Morawska is an author of a large number of papers and book chapter. She has also been involved at the executive level with a number of relevant national and international professional bodies and has been acting as an adviser to the World Health Organization. She is currently the President of the International Society of the Indoor Air Quality and Climate.Tunga Salthammer holds a diploma degree in chemistry (1986) and PhD in Physical Chemistry (1990) from the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany. In 1989 he conducted research at the Physics Department of Strathclyde University in Glasgow, UK. He joined the Fraunhofer-Institute for Wood Research, Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institute (WKI) in 1990, where he currently serves as Head of the Department “Chemical Technology and Environmental Research”. In 2003 he joined the University of Applied Sciences Branschweig-Wolfenbüttel as a Professor for Indoor Hygiene. He has been elected to the International Academy of Indoor Air Sciences (IAIAS), and is a member of the Editorial Board of the journal “Indoor Air”. His research interests include analytical chemistry, VOC/SVOC emission studies on indoor materials using test chambers and cells, chemical reactions in the indoor environment (Indoor chemistry), airborne particles and settled dust.
