The quantification of sources of carbonaceous aerosol is important to understand their atmospheric concentrations and regulating processes and to study possible effects on climate and air quality, in addition to develop mitigation strategies. In the framework of the European Integrated Project on Aerosol Cloud Climate Interactions (EUCAARI) fine ( Dp < 2.5 μm) and coarse (2.5 μm < Dp < 10 μm) aerosol particles were sampled from February to June (wet season) and from August to September (dry… CONTINUE READING
