Short summary
Contribution of biomass burning versus fossil fuel use on wintertime air pollution is investigated based on continuous surface measurements of black carbon (BC) and carbon monoxide (CO) at a suburban and an urban background monitoring sites in Athens. Fossil fuel combustion is found to be the major contributor to both BC and CO ambient concentrations. However, wood burning used for domestic heating makes a significant contribution of about 30 and 15 % to the observed BC and CO levels.
