Abstract

Cluster and principal component analysis procedures were used to examine compositions and time-dependent concentrations of aerosol particles collected over a 7-day period near Phoenix, Arizona. The three major sources are crustal material, copper smelters, and marine air. Two minor types, Ti-rich and Pb-rich, appear to be of local origin. -from Authors
