    Particle size distribution patterns of trace elements and metals across three size fractions (<0.25 μm, quasi-ultrafine particles, q-UF; 0.25–2.5 μm, accumulation particles; 2.5–10 μm, coarse particles) were analysed in ...
  • Minguillón, María Cruz; Rivas, Ioar; Moreno, Teresa; Alastuey, Andrés; Font, Oriol; Córdoba, Patricia; Álvarez Pedrerol, Mar; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Querol, Xavier (Elsevier, 2015)
    Urban air pollution has a greater impact on children's health compared to adults. In the framework of the BREATHE (BRain dEvelopment and Air polluTion ultrafine particles in scHool childrEn) project, the present work studies ...
