The smaller fragments can burn, generating DU-oxide aerosols.
A comparison of delayed radiobiological effects of depleted-uranium munitions versus fourth-generation nuclear weapons
Consequently, there can be much debate about how much of the DU expended in a military campaign has actually been dispersed in the biosphere in the form of aerosols or dust, and how much can be recovered and safely disposed of.

It can move in a fluid domain whose size is either of the scale of the particle (a red blood cell in a capillary) or many scales larger than the particle (a red blood cell in an artery, an aerosol in the lungs, a pollutant in a house, etc.). A typical application is the study of an isolated vesicle in external flows.

However, the variations in aerosol conditions have a greater effect on air shower measurements than variations in p, T , and u, and during nights with significant haze, the light flux from distant showers can be reduced by factors of 3 or more due to aerosol attenuation.

The vertical density profile of aerosols, as well as their size, shape, and composition, vary quite strongly with location and in time, and depending on local particle sources (dust, smoke, etc.) and sinks (wind and rain), the density of aerosols can change substantially from hour to hour.

The optical depth of the air is affected by the density and composition of molecules and aerosols, and can be treated as the sum of molecular and aerosol components: τ = τm + τa .
