Abstract

Berner cascade impactor was used to study urban aerosols in two localities of the Pomeranian macro-region Słupsk and Hel in autumn at different weather conditions. The range of aerodynamic diameters between 0.009 and 8.11 mm were separated. Elementary composition for each diameter was obtained in a complex procedure consisting of laser ablation of deposits then their successive ionization in inductively coupled plasma generator and finally mass selection in a quadrupole spectrometer. The chemical element analysis method proofs to be quick and versatile, allowing to identify different sources of air pollution, natural, industrial and due to the road traffic.


Key words:  laser ablation, impactor, LA ICP-MS, particle distribution
