Airborne lead pollution in metropolitan Taipei (Republic of China)






Water Air and Soil Pollution 91(3-4): 375-382

Airborne lead pollution in metropolitan Taipei (Republic of China)

To examine the spatial variation of airborne lead in Taipei, a field study was conducted during the summer and fall of 1991. Samples were collected 2-4 times daily at several sites for the determination of airborne lead. Results indicate that the average of air lead concentration of Taipei city is 0.70 +- 0.39 mu-g/m-3, and eighty-eight percent of particles are smaller than 10 mu-m. From high to low polluted area, the fine particle concentrations are 0.83, 0.51, 0.29 mu-g/m-3. The lead concentration of particulates lt 10 mu-m on 2nd, 7th, and 14th floors of a building are 0.75, 0.60, 0.55 mu-g/m-3, and appears to be little difference among vertical dispersions. The air lead concentrations (da lt 10 mu-m) on roadside, side walk and covered walk way from the vehicle emission source of a main road are 0.83, 0.78, 0.87 mu-g/m-3, the highest is on the covered walk way, For lead concentrations (da lt 10 mu-m) on the main street, side street and alley of an area are 0.34, 0.37, 0.35 mu-g/m-3; the result indicates lead concentrations on these pathways are not significantly different.
