Special Issue Information

The aim of this Special Issue is to publish recent research about the source apportionment of atmospheric particulate matter. The air quality has been improved in most regions and countries worldwide under strict control measures. However, air pollution is still a big problem in some undeveloped areas. Meantime, the different size particulates and their bounded toxic compounds are solidly connected with human health. Source apportionment is one of the most important methods for pollution control and policy making. There still have lots of questions about this issue.

The topic of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to:

Field monitoring or model simulation of PM

Source apportionment for different size PM

Pollution levels and characteristics of PM bounded chemicals

Human inhalation exposure and Health risk assessment
