This work addresses the theoretical aspects of the behavior of aerosol particles in the atmosphere. In particular, it focuses on mathematical modeling of atmospheric aerosols at the regional scale (3001000 km). The paper discusses the evolution of the model in a stepwise fashion. First is considered the mathematical formulation of the transport mechanisms used. Second is a synopsis of the physical processes that affect aerosol dynamics of the aerosol population. Then, a review of the pertinent chemistry of atmospheric aerosols is given. Various mathematical models of aerosol dynamics and chemistry and the formulation of the complete aerosol model are discussed. Concluding remarks include suggestions for future work such as the treatment of aerosols in clouds and model evaluation with data.
