Short summary
This research quantified particulate species that could be used to trace non-exhaust and exhaust traffic emissions. Results showed the important contribution of heavy metals from brake wear to total particulate traffic emissions. In France the traffic largely dominated by diesel vehicles led to important emissions of elemental carbon, as well as significant emissions of low-molecular-weight polycyclic aromatic compounds.
