Atmospheric particulate matter samples taken in urban and rural locations can be analyzed routinely for more than forty trace elements. With the increasing use of automated X-ray fluorescence and neutron activation analyses (Dzubay, 1977; Cooper, 1973), the cost of trace metals determination in airborne particulate samples has been greatly reduced. As a result, large volumes of data are being acquired that contain considerable chemical resolution, including concentration data on toxic trace elements like lead, arsenic, cadmium and nickel.
