Abstract: This report synthesizes the aerosol (=PM) physical and chemical data collected in the frame of the COST Action 633 (Particulate Matter: Properties Related to Health Effects) for rural, near-city, urban, and kerbside sites. It covers a large portion of Europe, divided in Northwestern, Southern and Central sectors. It is complementing a European aerosol phenomenology already published several years ago (Van Dingenen et al. 2004; Putaud et al., 2004). The data sets we collected include PM10 and/or PM2.5 mass concentrations, and aerosol particle number, or PM chemistry data. This compilation aims at highlighting similarities and differences in aerosol characteristics across the COST633 network, beyond PM mass concentrations that mainly reflect pollution dilution. It enables to work on the question ¿why do equal PM10 mass concentrations lead to different health effects across Europe¿, and contributes to identifying synergies and trade-offs between policies related to climate change mitigation and air pollution abatement.
