Project: Study of the Composition of Background and Biomass Burning Atmospheric Aerosols in the Amazon Basin.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-93 – 31-DEC-99
- Aerosol samples are collected in the Amazon basin at a number of regionally representative sites. The chemical composition of the aerosols is determined by various techniques (PIXE, INAA, IC, EPMA). The data sets are analyzed with receptor models andthe impact of the different sources/source types is assessed (e.g., of natural biogenic aerosol, biomass burning products, Sahara desert dust).
