Contents Notes
Collected ambient air (not deposition) samples of particles in Krakow, Poland at various distances from heavily traveled roads. Samples were characterized by distance from roads (up to 1,500 meters), particle size distributions (greater than or less than 1.9 microns in diameter), and metals concentrations (by particle-induced x-ray emission [PIXE] spectrometry). Estimated traffic contribution to the amount of particles in samples in both the larger and smaller size fractions. Copper was detected in all samples, with highest concentrations in the larger particle size fraction in samples relatively near roads. Copper concentrations fell rapidly as distance from road increased. Air quality modeling was used to estimate the fraction of the particles at various distances from the road that were due to road sources.
