Abstract
Results are presented for a pilot air quality assessment study concluded in the industrial city of Ostrava, Czech Republic, from October 16 to November 14, 1995. The objective of the study was to quantify the impact of emissions sources on residential areas in Ostrava. Ambient 24-h concentrations of fine and coarse particle mass, elemental species, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were measured at three sampling sites; concentrations of SO2, NOx, CO, PM-10 mass, and meteorological data were continuously monitored. Emissions from the major local sources were characterized in order to obtain chemical signatures for source apportionment modeling. Chemical mass balance receptor modeling was applied to ambient data in an attempt to apportion PM2.5 mass , including toxic metals and PAHs. Results indicated a large impact from coke ovens at all monitoring sites when winds were from the southwest.
