Özet

Instrumental neutron activation analysis, flame atomic absorption spectrometry, flame atomic emission spectrometry, graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry, ion chromatography and visible spectrometry were applied to determine the compositions of atmospheric aerosols, which were collected at a rural site in the Western Black Sea Coast of Turkey. A total of 354 daily aerosol samples were analyzed for about 46 trace and major elements and ions. Sample preparation, quality control procedures, and instrumental operating conditions were reported. Most of the elements measured commonly by the above techniques have very large correlation coefficients and low intercept values indicating the agreement between the results.
