Abstract

The predominant peak in the mass distribution emitted from each source measured in this study occurs at or below about 0.2 μm in particle diameter, whereas the Los Angeles atmospheric aerosol contains peaks at a variety of sizes in the range between 0.1 and 1.0 μm in particle diameter, including peaks at sizes larger than 0.2 μm. This suggests that considerable modification of the primary aerosol size distribution occurs because of subsequent processes in the atmosphere. The data presented here are intended for use in defining the size distribution of the primary combustion source effluent for use with mathematical models of the evolution of the atmospheric aerosol size distribution.
