Abstract

Aerosol samples were collected in Phoenix, Arizona on eleven dates between July 1989 and April 1990. Using an electron microprobe with an energy-dispersive x-ray spectrometer, elemental compositions were determined for approximately 1000 particles per sample. Fine-fraction samples (particle cut size of 1 to 2 μm) were analyzed for each date; coarse-fraction samples were also analyzed for four of the dates. Using multivariate statistical methods, the data were reduced.
