DescriptionAn aerosol generator and wind tunnel system designed for use in aerosol deposition is described. Gross deposition on rough pubescent leaves was nearly 7 times greater than on smooth, waxy leaves. Results suggest that aerosol deposition, on a per unit area basis, for single horizontal streamlining leaves is similar to that for arrays of leaves under similar flow conditions. Wind reentrainment of PbCl2 particles was negligible while 2.54 cm of simulated rainfall was sufficient to remove 85 percent of recently applied aerosol.
