Abstract : Bacteria and fungi in an aerosol state easily saturate air in motion and are then carried great distances in both hiorizontal aid vertical directions. However questions of the dispersal of microbes in the atmosphere. There, and their occurrence and viability in the upper layers of the atmosphere have been studied very little, particularly with regard to different meteorological situations and at different seasons of the year, Yet these are precisely the questions of interest with regard to the carrying of microbes at great distances and which are of significance for public health and of general biological value.
