Short summary
This study attempts to link observations of biogenic organic compounds found in atmospheric particles to landscape exposure of the incoming air mass. The results revealed that several of the observed compounds were connected to exposure of coniferous forests. There were also a number of landscape types that did not contribute to the biogenic organic compounds, sea and ocean as an example. This type of methodology may be important in order to study land use changes impact on air quality.
