A shape dependent method for particle size distribution (PSD) estimation based on bulk scattering properties was elaborated. This method estimates the parameters of a particle size distribution with predefined shape from the bulk scattering spectra. The estimation routine was validated on simulated data of polystyrene in water suspensions.

The concept of the "generic" particle size distribution is based on categorizing measured particle size data from similar processes generating emissions from similar materials. These generic distributions have been developed from sampled size distributions from about 200 sources. Generic particle size distributions are approximations.
