Combining Positive Matrix Factorization and Radiocarbon Measurements for Source Apportionment of PM2.5 from a National Background Site in North China


To explore the utility of combining positive matrix factorization (PMF) with radiocarbon (14C) measurements for source apportionment, we applied PM2.5 data collected for 14 months at a national background station in North China to PMF models. The solutions were compared to 14C results of four seasonally averaged samples and three outlier samples. Comparing… (More)
