Short summary
Molecular organic tracer compounds were analyzed in six particle sizes in an urban background site (Barcelona) and in a rural site in Spain. The results improve considerably our current understanding on the composition and particle-size distribution of organic air pollution in traffic intensive urban areas and rural sites where combustion of biomass plays an important role on the local and regional air quality, either by emissions from open fires or from domestic heating.
