    Atin Adhikari

    Georgia Southern University

Dr. Adhikari has collected control air samples from three cotton farm locations and analyzed them for PM and culturable microorganisms. Respiratory deposition modeling data for particulate matter (PM) was presented in the inhaled aerosol dosimetry conference in Irvine, CA. Air sampling and other field experiments at cotton farms continue during harvesting (by combine harvesters).
