Spatial variation in particle number size distributions in a large metropolitan area

  title={Spatial variation in particle number size distributions in a large metropolitan area},
  author={J. F. Mej and Lidia Morawska and Kerrie Mengersen},
Air quality studies have indicated that particle number size distribution (NSD) is unevenly spread in urban air. To date, these studies have focussed on differences in concentration levels between sampling locations rather than differences in the underlying geometries of the distributions. As a result, the existing information on the spatial variation of the NSD in urban areas remains incomplete. To investigate this variation in a large metropolitan area in the southern hemisphere, NSD data… CONTINUE READING
