Results of the aerosol sampling inside the Object Shelter are considered in the work. The results show a consistent and significant contribution of the submicron fraction to the total aerosol activity. Different methods of interpretation of impactor data series are compared in order to indicate and detect in most effective way the submicron fraction as a separate mode of the distribution. The following methods were used—method of probabilistic-logarithmic scale, method of likelihood function, and restoration of the initial distribution using passage functions of impactor cascades. Practically all the collected data on aerosol distribution inside the Shelter show a distinct submicron component. The contribution of the submicron component into the total aerosol activity is about 40%. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
