Ambient aerosol measurements in wintertime Denver and Albuquerque show that volatile and elemental carbon constitute more than half of the observed total fine particle mass. A multiple linear regression method has been used to estimate the contribution to these carbonaceous materials made by mobile sources and wood smoke. In both cities the wood smoke contribution is much greater at night, and is much greater in Albuquerque than in Denver. The greater impact in Albuquerque is presumably due at least partially to the more residential character of the sampling site.
