Short summary
In this study we have focused our attention on the sources atmospheric carbon particles. More specifically, we evaluate a fast and inexpensive method which determines the source of these particles by utilizing light absorption by the particles. We found that this method is suitable for source estimation by comparing it to another method based on carbon isotopes and chemical tracer molecules. Cheap and fast methods based on light absorption can be utilized widely to deduce particle sources.
