Abstract: From May 2011 to December 2012, samples of PM10 were collected in the Atmosphere, Biosphere, Climate – Integrated Station (ABC-IS) using different instruments in parallel. These samples were collected to perform the chemical characterization of PM10, especially those species that are not analyzed routinely. These samples were used for a study on the levels of trace elements (Cavalli et al, 2012) and the comparability of two analytical methods to determine trace elements in PM10 (Yatkin et al., 2012). In addition, a thorough chemical characterization of the PM10 collected in this monitoring campaign is planned to be used as input for a receptor model exercise to identify the sources of PM in this site. The results of the quality tests were positive and the comparability between the different gravimetric methods was good, especially for concentrations below 60 µg/m3.
