Aerosol trace metals, particle morphology and total gaseous mercury in the atmosphere of Oxford, UK

Abstract:

An investigation of atmospheric trace metals was conducted in Oxford, UK, a small city ~ 60 miles northwest of London, in 2007 and 2008. Concentrations of Sr, Mo, Cd, Pb, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu and Zn in aerosol were measured in bulk and size segregated samples. In addition, total gaseous mercury (TGM) concentrations were monitored semi-continuously by cold vapour-atomic fluorescence spectroscopy. Metal concentrations in Oxford were intermediate between previously reported levels of UK rur...
