Analytical Measurements of Atmospheric Urban Aerosol
Understanding the complex nature of atmospheric urban aerosol mandates the utilization of
analytical technology. In this feature article, we provide a glimpse of several analytical techniques
that are most commonly used for urban atmospheric aerosol measurements, with an emphasis on
particle mass spectrometry methods

Aerosols are small solid or liquid particles that suspend in air.
While large size particles can rapidly settle out, smaller
particles (j 1 micron) have longer atmospheric lifetimes, on
the order of up to weeks to months. Thus, these small particles
