Short summary
This study is the first to report size-resolved PM mass and composition in metro Manila, Philippines. The results, which focus on the southwest monsoon season (SWM), are important with regard to understanding the competition between local sources and long-range transport, characterizing the properties of aerosol impacted by both aqueous processing and wet scavenging, and providing contextual data for comparison with other monsoonal regions and coastal megacities.
