Abstract

The urban area of Madrid (Spain), as in many other cities worldwide, is characterized by poor ambient air quality. Previous studies in the area have pointed out traffic as the main source of fine particles, while dust resuspension was found to be responsible for elevated levels of coarse particles (Querol et al, 2004). Street washing is one of the methods that might reduce the dust resuspension. The aim of this study was to quantify the contribution of road dust to particulate matter and evaluate the effects of street washing on the strength of resuspension
