History

AAAR was founded in 1982 by David S. Ensor, Sheldon K. Friedlander, Benjamin Y.H. Liu, David T. Shaw and Peter Dietz. These concerned professionals recognized the importance of aerosols in a number of areas including air pollution, industrial hygiene, atmospheric sciences, clean room technology, and nuclear safety. Their fledgling organization quickly attracted a core group of professionals practicing in these areas.

Today, AAAR is an international organization recognized for its high technical standards and the quality of its Annual Conference. Members include professionals and students from academia, government, and industry throughout the world.
