Short summary
Nitro-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (NPAH) are ubiquitous and formed in polluted air, but little is known about their abundance in background air and long-range transport potential. We studied NPAHs in the gas and particulate phases of aerosols in the marine (Mediterranean) and continental (Gt. Hungarian Plain) environment in summer. The NPAH levels determined in the southeastern outflow of Europe are the lowest ever reported and confirm intercontinental transport potential.
