Abstract:In a continuing effort to improve communications among the atmospheric sciences, policy, and health communities, an international specialty conference was initiated in 2001 that took place in April 2003 in Pittsburgh, PA. The conference entitled, "Particulate Matter: Atmospheric Sciences, Exposure, and the Fourth Colloquium on PM and Human Health," provided a major show case for presentations and a meaningful exchange of information among the three communities. Over 350 papers were presented as posters along with a series of workshops on first day followed by 2.5 days of plenary sessions addressing key atmospheric sciences and health questions related to PM, its fate and accumulation in air, linkages between source and receptor, and PM and health relationships. This special issue of Atmospheric Environment, for which this preface describes, is one of six resulting from the subjected meeting. Three others are presented in different atmospheric sciences journals (AS&T, JGR-Atmospheres, and JAWMA) and in two special issues of Inhalation Toxicology. This preface simply introduces the conference and the special issue. The United states Environmental Protection Agency through its Office of Research and Development funded and managed the preparation of this preface. It has been subjected to Agency's administrative review and approved for publication.
