A combined molecular and isotopic approach was used in this study to reveal the source and transport of aerosols at a remote oceanic site. Fatty acid distributions and stable carbon isotopic compositions of individual fatty acids were determined in the aerosol samples collected at Chichi-Jima in the western North Pacific over a period of 41 months. Fatty acid concentration and isotopic composition delta13C (vs PDB) exhibited temporal variations. Concentrations of fatty acids (C12-C34) ranged… CONTINUE READING
