Abstract

A wide variety of combustion sources produce soot, i.e., carbon aerosols containing variable quantities of organic matter. The most significant transportation-related sources of such materials are diesel engines. Diesel power has been used for railway locomotives, long haul trucks, and earthmoving equipment for many years. However, recently a strong trend has developed toward use of diesel engines in urban service vehicles and also taxicabs. In the near future substantial numbers of diesel-powered automobiles may be used by the general public.
