 en An overview of particulate dry deposition: measuring methods, deposition velocity and controlling factors
Mariraj Mohan, S.


Much importance was given to dry deposition over the past few decades as it deteriorated the environmental conditions and resulted in subsequent health effects. This paper starts with an overall scenario of dry deposition research; it focuses on: various particulate dry deposition flux measurement methods, comparison of various published numerical values on dry deposition velocity and factors controlling dry deposition velocity. This work provides a technical overview to research studies on the current state of dry deposition and limitations of various measurement methods. Relationship between dry deposition flux and particle concentration is discussed with the help of previous works. Various mathematical models used to predict dry deposition velocity are discussed. Dry deposition velocity of particulates around the world is compared to gain perspective on factors influencing dry deposition.
