- ... PURPOSE: Much attention has been focused on the role of elemental carbon or its surrogate black carbon (BC) in PM-mediated toxicity. It is possible that its toxicity is related to the age or origin of the particles. This study presents methods to apportion ambient BC into its regional and local components and, once estimated, characterizes their seasonal and daily variability. METHODS: We estimate ...
