Data sets

Ten-year (2008-2017) PM2.5 major components and select tracers at Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong Jian Zhen Yu, Wing Sze Chow, and X. H. Hilda Huang

Short summary
Long-term monitoring data of PM2.5 chemical composition provide essential information for evaluation and planning of control measures. Here we present a 10-year (2008–2017) time series of PM2.5, its major components, and select source markers in an urban site in Hong Kong. The dataset verified the success of local vehicular emission control measures as well as reduction of sulfate and regional sources such as industrial and coal combustion and crop residue burning emissions over the decade.
