Sources and Concentrations of Nanoparticles (

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle



Whilst limited information on particle size distributions and number concentrations in cities is available, very few data on the very smallest of particles, nanoparticles, have been recorded. Measurements in this study show that road traffic and stationary combustion sources generate a significant number of nanoparticles of diameter <10 nm. Measurements at the roadside (4m from the kerb) and downwind from the traffic (more than 25m from the kerb) show that nanoparticles (
