Abstract

This SEM/ESEM (environmental scanning electron microscope) study provides inventory/ particulate atlas of the atmospheric aerosols collected from the lower troposphere of the Belgrade (Yugoslavia) suburb as a model system for the particulate matter from urban environment in Balkan peninsula. Most significant aerosol fractions observed in Belgrade troposphere are carbonaceous soot particles and coal ash particulates. Carbonaceous soot are equally represented by fine soot originating from internal combustion engines and that of local coal power plants, which are, together with associated ash deposits, the main contributor to the particulate pollution in the Belgrade region.
