Characterization of individual particles in the Antwerp aerosol

Auteurs :
VAN BORM, W. A.
ADAMS, F. C.

Description :
The particles could be divided into six main classes : soil dust, auto exhausts, sulfates, sea-salt particles, biological particles and miscellaneous anthropogenic emissions. Each class was split up into several particle types, of which the abundance (number %), the temporal variation, size distribution and chemical composition were determined. Evidence was found of several atmospheric reactions, eg. secondary SO42-, formation by heterogeneous oxidation of SO2, SO42-condensation on existing fine and coarse particles and conversion of compounds as NaCl and PbBrCl into SO42.
