Environmental microbial aerosols are formed by processes such as wastewater treatment. The significance of these aerosols to human populations is dependent upon the concentration and type of microorganisms contained therein and upon the probability of susceptible population exposure to the infectious organisms. An approach to the study of environmental microbial aerosols to meet research objectives requires consideration of the environmental conditions during the study as well as assurance of quality throughout the sample collection and assay procedures.
