  author={Imad El Haddad and Nicolas Marchand and Henri Wortham and Christine Piot and J. L. Besombes and Julie Cozic and Catherine Chauvel and Alexis Armengaud and Didier Robin and J L Jaffrezo},
Marseille, the most important port of the Mediterranean Sea, represents a challenging case study for source apportionment exercises, combining an active photochemistry and multiple emission sources, including fugitive emissions from industrial sources and shipping. This paper presents a Chemical Mass Balance (CMB) approach based on organic markers and metals to apportion the primary sources of organic aerosol in Marseille, with a special focus on industrial emissions. Overall, the CMB model… CONTINUE READING
