Abstract Aerosol in Miami, Florida was sampled in June 1975 to better characterize the aerosol in an urban environment devoid of heavy industry. The three sampling sites selected were an area with light industrial activity, one with heavy commercial activity, and a sparsely populated residential area. Sampling devices at each site included a five-stage cascade impactor and a streaker sampler to give the time distribution of trace elements. A wind-direction-sensitive sampling system controlling four five-stage cascade impactors was installed at one site. Size and time distributions of trace elements heavier than aluminum were determined by proton induced x-ray emission at Florida State University. Determining the directional distribution of the trace elements allowed pinpointing of strong local sources. The calculated aerosol source coefficient indicated less than 10 percent of the aerosol mass in Miami can be attributed to the sea spray.
