[Sources Analysis of Heavy Metal Aerosol Particles in North Suburb of Nanjing].Huan Jing Ke Xue 2016; 37(12):4467-4474HJ
Heavy metal aerosol particles were first measured with Single Particle Aerosol Mass Spectrometry (SPAMS) in north suburb of Nanjing from January to December, 2013. Using the ART-2a neural network algorithm, we studied the chemical characteristics of aerosol particles and found that the main sources of heavy metal aerosols in Nanjing were industrial emissions, biomass burning, traffic emissions, fuel combustion and dust, accounting for 35.7%, 34.45%, 13.6%, 11.03% and 4.07% respectively. Pb, Cd and Cr-containing aerosols mainly came from industrial emissions. Cu, Co and Hg-containing aerosols mainly came from biomass burning. V, Zn and Ba-containing aerosols mainly came from traffic emissions. As and Ni-containing aerosols mainly came from fuel combustion.
