Abstract

Potential hazards shown by airborne participate matter have developed an increasing interest in the atmospheric aerosol study. The presence of metallurgical, fertilizer and naval industries at the city of Cartagena, as well as an oil refinery, have caused very important air pollution problems. TSP and lead content measurements are considered the main basic parameters in the atmospheric aerosol quality control. This paper picks up the evolution of these parameters along a five years study. 1 Introduction Cartagena is a Mediterranean city situated in the southwest of Europe, latitude 37° 37' 08" N, longi
