Air pollution sources of given types, whether natural or man-made, emit a characteristic set of chemical elements in approximately fixed proportions. If the sources in a polluted region are known, the contributions from each source can be estimated by measuring elemental concentrations a t a given point and solving a set of simultaneous linear algebraic equations. The method has been applied to the particulate matter measured in the air of Pasadena over an 11-hr period and averaged over… CONTINUE READING
