Road dust collection campaign Athens

7 August, 2013

Event Navigation

A road dust collection campaign was conducted in Athens on August 7th, 2013. These are the first experimental data on road dust chemical profile for the city and they will be used during receptor model application. The campaign was carried out on Stournari street, outside the Ministry of Health, at the city centre. A specially designed dust collector was used for the sampling of PM10 on quartz and teflon filters.  The collector has been developed by IDAEA/CSIC. Training of NCSR “D” staff on the use of the collector and the sampling protocol to be followed was performed by Dr. A. Karanasiou from IDAEA/CSIC. The collected filters are now being analyzed for elemental and organic carbon, ionic species and major and trace elements.
