To investigate the diurnal profile of the concentration and composition of ambient coarse particles, three sampling sites were set up in the Los Angeles Basin to collect coarse particulate matter (CPM) in four different time periods of the day (morning, midday, afternoon and overnight) in summer and winter. The samples were analyzed for total and(More)
This study presents different research techniques linked together to improve our understanding of the particulate matter (PM) impacts on health. PM samples from the exhaust of different vehicles were collected by a versatile aerosol concentration enrichment system (VACES). Waterborne PM samples were collected with this technique, thus retaining the original(More)
To investigate the relationship among sources, chemical composition, and redox activity of coarse particulate matter (CPM), three sampling sites were set up up in the Los Angeles Basin to collect ambient coarse particles at four time periods (morning, midday, afternoon, and overnight) in summer 2009 and winter 2010. The generation of reactive oxygen species(More)
UNLABELLED To assess the impact of past, current and proposed air quality regulations on coarse particulate matter (CPM), the concentrations of CPM mass and its chemical constituents were examined in the Los Angeles Basin from 1986 to 2009 using PM data acquired from peer-reviewed journals and regulatory agency database. PM10 mass levels decreased by(More)
UNLABELLED In the fall and winter of 2007 to 2011, 167 24-h quartz filter-based fine particle (PM2.5) samples were collected at a regional background site in the central Pearl River Delta. The PM2.5 showed an annual reduction trend with a rate of 8.58 μg m(-3) (p<0.01). The OC component of the PM2.5 reduced by 1.10 μg m(-3) yr(-1) (p<0.01), while the(More)

This study aimed to explore the relationship between air pollutants, particularly acidic particles, and metallic material corrosion. An atmospheric corrosion test was carried out in spring-summer 2012 at a polluted urban site, i.e., Tung Chung in western Hong Kong. Nine types of metallic materials, namely iron, Q235 steel, 20# steel, 16Mn steel, copper,(More)
