Elemental Constituents of Miami Aerosol as Function of Particle Size

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Results are presented of proton-induced x-ray emission analysis of aerosol samples taken in Miami, Fla., in the summer of 1974. Elemental concentrations and elemental ratios as a function of particle size are shown for 13 elements. These size distributions allow the determination of the sources of several elements observed in the Miami aerosol. Data from north Florida and Bermuda are compared.
