Themed collection on bioaerosols: detection, transport and risk assessment is open for submissions

In this gold open-access themed collection, Environmental Science: Atmospheres focuses on bioaerosols, which are airborne particles that are living or originate from living organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, fungal spores and pollen.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Sampling and detection of bioaerosols
  • Bioaerosol sensors
  • Source and emission of bioaerosols
  • Environmental transport of bioaerosols
  • Exposure and risk assessment
  • Ventilation and air quality control
  • Risk control and management

Bioaerosols are a natural component of both indoor and outdoor air, and some can have significant impacts on human health, agriculture and ecosystems. One example is the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 via airborne virus-containing particles. Papers that deal with detection, measurement, transport, risk mitigation, and other related research of bioaerosols are within the scope of the themed collection.
