ANGULO, Luis C; HUERTAS, José I  e  RESTREPO, Gloria M. Characterization of Total Suspended Particles (TSP) and Inhalable Particulate Matter (PM 10) generated in Open Pit Coal Mining Areas . Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.4, pp.23-34. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642011000400004.

This article presents a literature review about the quantification and characterization of total suspended particles (TSP) and inhalable particulate matter (PM 10) generated in open pit coal mining areas. Particle matter is a complex pollutant due to its physical characteristics (particle size distribution, morphology and density) and its chemical characteristics (organic and inorganic components, metals, and primary and secondary pollutants). These characteristics are critical to determine the type and the magnitude of their effects on human health. It was found that the different works published in the literature have used lab and field experiments, and also modeling studies. This literature review contributes to improve the understanding and evaluation of technologies that must be used to find solutions to this atmospheric pollution problem.

Palavras-chave : suspended particles; inhalable particulate matter; PM 10and TSP; coal mining.
