WHAT DOES PARTICULATE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Particulates

Atmospheric particulate matter – also known as particulates or particulate matter – are tiny pieces of solid or liquid matter associated with the Earth's atmosphere. They are suspended in the atmosphere as atmospheric aerosol, a term which refers to the particulate/air mixture, as opposed to the particulate matter alone. However, it is common to use the term aerosol to refer to the particulate component alone. Sources of particulate matter can be manmade or natural. They can adversely affect human health and also have impacts on climate and precipitation. Subtypes of atmospheric particle matter include suspended particulate matter, respirable suspended particle, fine particles, ultrafine particles, and soot. The IARC and WHO designates particulates a Group 1 carcinogen. Particulates are the deadliest form of air pollution due to its ability to penetrate deep into the lungs and blood streams unfiltered, causing permanent DNA mutations, heart attacks and premature death.

Definition of particulate in the English dictionary
