The respiratory tract deposition of particles from two types of biomass combustion was measured for 10 healthy subjects. The aerosol was extensively characterised. Model calculations of the deposition were made based on the particle properties. The results show that particle water absorption has substantial impact on deposition. The particles from biomass combustion obtained a size in the respiratory tract at which the deposition probability is close to its minimum.
