Inversion of aerosol size distribution data


A comprehensive analysis of the problem of determining aerosol size distributions on the basis of data from convnetional measuring instruments is presented. An inversion algorithm based on regularization is developed that enables one to find size distributions that are both smooth and faithful to a set of data generated by a combination of instruments. The algorithm includes consideration of the dependent nature of errors in the data. Several numerical examples are presented that compare the present technique with previously available methods.
