Source aportionment of particulate matter emissions
By combining the results of Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) as well as Elemental Organic Carbon Analyzer (EC-OC) in addition to meteorological data, source apportionment models can estimate the contributions of various sources to air pollution, such as vehicular emissions, biomass burning, industrial activities, and secondary organic aerosols.
This information is critical to understanding the sources of particulate matter pollution and developing effective pollution control policies and strategies.
