The effect of extreme-low-frequency electromagnetic field on air borne particles concentration

L Bamidele


Electromagnetic fields produce alternating electric fields and modify static
electric fields in the vicinity. These electric fields, if large enough, can alter the
concentration or transport of airborne particles (including particles harmful to health). In this study, the concentration of radioactive materials (gamma radiation) was monitored around transmission power lines. The result of this study shows that there is an increase in concentration of air borne articles but not high enough to cause health hazard.
