Atmospheric (gaseous and particulate) and seawater (dissolved and particulate in the surface microlayer and underlying waters) samples were collected in 2001 and 2002 in two North-Western Mediterranean contrasting coastal environments, Banyuls-sur-Mer (France) and Barcelona (Spain). The total aerosol suspended particle concentrations (microg m(-3)) were higher in Barcelona (266+/-132) than in Banyuls-sur-Mer (149+/-43), even under near-gale conditions. The influence of the marine aerosol in the… CONTINUE READING
