This paper combines an analysis of hourly air pollution measurements and daily meteorological data with backward air mass trajectories, in order to elucidate local/regional sources and processes (e.g., atmospheric dispersion/stagnation, dust resuspension, etc.) defining PM levels and size distribution in Valencia (Spain). Four size fractions of PM (PM10, PMCOARSE = PM10–PM2.5, PM2.5 and PM1) were independently studied. No chemical/physical interactions among the four different size categories… CONTINUE READING
