Characterisation of airborne particles in London by computer-controlled scanning electron microscopy
Abstract This study assessed the personal exposure of cyclists and Underground train users in London to particulate matter below 5 μm in diameter (PM 5 ) and provides evidence of the number, shape,Expand
Deposition measurement of particulate matter in connection with corrosion studies
A new passive particle collector (inert surrogate surface) that collects particles from all directions has been developed and correlated surprisingly well with the PM10 concentration, except at sites very close to traffic. Expand
Metal Contamination in British Urban Dusts and Soils
Contamination de l'environnement par les metaux lourds tels que le cadmium, le cuivre, le zinc et notamment le plomb. Etude sur l'environnement interieur et exterieur au Royaume Uni
Lead levels in Birmingham dusts and soils.
The age of the property was found to influence the lead levels in both housedust and garden soil, with older houses having significantly higher concentrations than newer properties (less than 35 years). Expand
Characterisation of selected speciated organic compounds associated with particulate matter in London
Total suspended particulate matter (TSP) was collected and analysed at two sites in central and north London during 1995/6 for particulate-associated total organic carbon (TOC), particulate elementalExpand
Heavy metals distribution and risk assessment in soil from an informal E-waste recycling site in Lagos State, Nigeria
A high level of contamination is established in the study site and underscores the importance of applying the appropriate chemical speciation in risk assessment. Expand
Dose-response functions for the soiling of heritage materials due to air pollution exposure.
The relationship between soiling (measured as loss of reflectance) and ambient PM(10) concentrations was quantified leading to the development of dose-response functions for the soiling of materials. Expand
Characterizing the sources of particulate lead in house dust by automated scanning electron microscopy
Automated scanning electron microscopy procedures have been devised for apportioning the sources of lead in household dust. Source particles were sampled from auto exhausts, road dusts, garden soils,Expand
The effects of air pollution on cultural heritage.
This book reviews the sources of the air pollutants responsible for building damage and the mechanisms involved. Studies investigating the relationships between pollution concentration (dose) and theExpand
