AbstractIn this study the origin of the carbonaceous fraction of total suspended particles (TSP) in air was analyzed. While the summer data show increasing carbon concentrations in the Los Angeles air basin from west to east, in the winter high levels of carbon particles can be found over the coast. The smallest and most dangerous particle fraction is principally composed of fossil carbon.
