Abstract

A study of single particle mass spectrometric analysis of urban aerosols was carried out. Single particle aerosol mass spectrometers allow both the size and composition of particles to be determined in real time. Variations in particle composition were recorded as a function of time and particle size. Short-term events were identified that correspond to a significant increase in the number of particles having a specific size and composition.
