Interpretation of variations in fine, coarse and black smoke particulate matter concentrations in a Northern European city
The PM2.5, PMcoarse and black smoke (BS) particle metrics broadly reflect different source contributions to PM10. The aim of this study was to generate data for PM2.5 at an urban background site in the UK, and to use the ...
The metal content of airborne particles in Edinburgh: application to epidemiological research
(Oxford University Press, 2002)
Metals are putative causative agents in the association between ill health and exposure to airborne particles. We present preliminary results from an epidemiological study using exposure metrics of metal contained in ...
Effect of long-range transport on local PM10 concentrations in the UK
(Taylor and Francis, 2000)
This study describes the effects of long-range transport of secondary airborne particles on local PM10 levels in Edinburgh (UK) during the period 1 January to 31 March 1996. Air mass back trajectories for each day were ...
Total and water soluble trace metal content of urban background PM10, PM2.5 and Black Smoke in Edinburgh, UK
Toxicological studies have implicated trace metals in airborne particles as possible contributors to respiratory and/or cardiovascular inflammation. As part of an epidemiological study, co-located 24 h samples of PM10, ...
A time-series study of the health effects of water-soluble and total-extractable metal content of airborne particulate matter
(BMJ Publishing Group, 2009)
Objectives: To assess whether adverse acute cardiopulmonary health outcomes are associated with concentration of trace metals in airborne particulate matter. Methods: Daily PM10 and PM2.5 was collected for one year in ...
