Abstract

Mass concentrations of sulphate, nitrate, ammo- nium, organic carbon (OC), elemental carbon (EC) were de- termined from real time single particle data in the size range 0.13.0µm measured by an Aerosol Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer (ATOFMS) at urban and rural sites in Canada. To quantify chemical species within individual particles mea- sured by an ATOFMS, ion peak intensity of m/z 97 for sul- phate, 62 for nitrate, +18 for ammonium, +43 for OC, and +36 for EC were scaled using the number and size distribu- tion data by an Aerodynamic Particle Sizer (APS) and a Fast Mobility Particle Sizer (FMPS). Hourly quantified chemical species from ATOFMS single-particle analysis were com- pared with collocated fine particulate matter (aerodynamic diameter
