Short summary
In this work, size distributions and chemical compositions of 36 PM metals emitted from traffic emissions are explored by tunnel experiments. Potential sources of tunnel PM are also identified. Importantly, fingerprinting ratios of wear debris and automotive catalysts are established. The ratios will be good tools for apportioning PM sources in the polluted urban atmosphere.
In this work, size distributions and chemical compositions of 36 PM metals emitted from traffic...
