  1. Increased airborne bacterial survival as a function of particle content and size.

    Article - En anglais

    Two test vegetative bacteria, Pseudomonas syringae and Erwinia herbicola, and a physical aerosol decay indicator, Bacillus subtilis var. niger spores, were sprayed into a particle size fractionating wind tunnel.

    Test bacterial survival significantly increased directly with droplet size for varying test cell to spore ratios and temperature.

    However, survival varied inversely with relative humidity.
