Paper Abstract

Several methods (particle counting and sizing, (beta) -ray absorption monitoring, gravimetric measurements, microscopy) were all applied to study the airborne dust particle pollution in Budapest, at various locations and during different seasons of the year. In addition, the airborne dust particle concentration was determined at several altitudes and several locations as a function of particle size. The results obtained by different measurements demonstrate that in certain cases the measured pollution exceeded the values permitted by Hungarian health standards.
