Residual Oil Sources are found Primarily at Northeastern sites and show Upwind Probability Fields which are “Local” and Strongly Convergent (“Greater NYC” area)

Wood Smoke Sources are Found in All Regions and show Upwind Probability Fields which are Both Local and more Distant and Strongly Divergent (Likely Combinations of RWC & Forest Fires?)


Northern New England Wood Smoke Sources are primarily Local New England and Eastern Canada

NE Wood Smoke influence is primarily Local in Winter (wood stoves) and is more Regional (& Canadian) in Summer (wild fires)


Wood Smoke has different regional origins in NE, MA, SW New England and Eastern Canada

Secondary SO4 has common regional origins in NE, MA, SW

NE: ACAD, PMRC, LYBR; MA: WASH, SHEN, JARI; SE: GRSM, MACA


3 Toronto Coal Sources: Primary Coal (no secondaries), (NH4)2SO4 (and little else), Acidic SO4 & Secondary OC

While These 3 “Virtual Source Components” are uncorrelated, they all come predominantly from the same Upwind Region


High Incremental Probability Contours for Secondary Sulfate Sources: Toronto, Ont. (VT DEC UNMIX sources, HY-SPLIT trajectories) Washington DC (Battelle PMF source, extracted from CATT, ArcView)




Ammonium Nitrate at a wide range of Eastern Sites appears to be associated with transport from areas of high agricultural NH3 emissions

From Donna Kenski’s 14-site traj. Analysis

From NADP Precip. Chem.


Toronto Mobile Source influence is predominantly “Local” & Northerly, Coal Sources are predominantly “US Midwest” & Southerly, NH4NO3 is predominantly Westerly, Mixed Near/Far Emissions

However, despite the apparent important influence of agricultural NH3 emissions for highest concentrations of NH4NO3, note that there is also a moderately strong weekday increase in Toronto NO3, suggesting importance of local urban NOx or (I think) local NH3.


Highest Levels of “Crustal or Dust” Sources at several Eastern US sites are consistent with Sahara Dust influences, but…

5-day Trajectories (and limited grid coverage) are not sufficient for identifying Dust origins and only indicate latter part of transport route.


CATT (Comparative Aerosol Trajectory Tool): Future Plans Eastern US sites are consistent with Sahara Dust influences, but…

  • Develop “On-the Fly” Trajectory Gridder to process raw ATAD (& other) Trajectories.

  • Expand Coverage of Aerosol Variables to include all raw Species Data at these sites.

  • Expand Coverage of Measurement Sites to include entire IMPROVE Network.
