AB  - Accurate monitoring of indoor mass concentrations of particulate matter is very important for health risk assessment as people in developed countries spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. The direct reading, aerosol monitoring device, Turnkey, OSIRIS Particle Monitor (Model 2315) and the European reference low volume sampler, LVS3 (Sven/Leckel LVS3) with size-selective inlets for PM10 and PM2.5 fractions were used to assess the comparability of available optical and gravimetric methods for particulate matter characterization in indoor air. Simultaneous 24-hour samples were collected in an indoor environment for 60 sampling periods in the town of Bor, Serbia. The 24-hour mean PM10 levels from the OSIRIS monitor were well correlated with the LVS3 levels (R-2=0.87) and did not show statistically significant bias. The 24-hour mean PM2.5 levels from the OSIRIS monitor were moderately correlated with the LVS3 levels (R-2=0.71), but show statistically significant bias. The results suggest that the OSIRIS monitor provides sufficiently accurate measurements for PM10. The OSIRIS monitor under-estimated the indoor PM10 concentrations by approximately 12%, relative to the reference LVS3 sampler. The accuracy of PM10 measurements could be further improved through empirical adjustment. For the fine fraction of particulate matter, PM2.5, it was found that the OSIRIS monitor underestimated indoor concentrations by approximately 63%, relative to the reference LVS3 sampler. This could lead to exposure misclassification in health effects studies relying on PM2.5 measurements collected with this instrument in indoor environments. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

AB  - While information on air pollution in the form of particulate matter (PM) has been monitored for a longer period for EU countries, availability of PM data sets in the Western Balkan countries, including the Republic of Serbia, are still limited. Studies related to particulate pollution research have only been carried out in the past several years. The main objective of this paper is to present PM levels measured in the ambient air in the surrounding settlements of the Copper Smelter Complex Bor, as well as a comparison of PM levels in the surrounding settlements with those measured in Bor town. The ambient levels of PM particles (PM10, PM2.5) were measured by automatic PM monitors in 4 nearby settlements: Slatina, Ostrelj, Krivelj and Brezonik in the time interval from 2005 to 2010. According to the measurement results, PM10 and PM2.5 levels in the ambient air were higher in the cold, heating, (October-March) than In the warm no heating period (April-September). Exceeding of the daily limit of PM10 and PM2.5 mass concentration levels was observed at all measuring points. A higher number of exceedances was detected in the cold period. The results indicate that there is a significant seasonal change in the level of fine particles at all measuring places in surroundings. In addition, the PM levels in Bar are more influenced by the air pollution from the Copper Smelter Complex than the settlements in the vicinity, where the PM concentrations were greatly Influenced by the presence of domestic heating in the cold period.

AB  - In this paper the levels of twenty one elements (Ag Al, As, B, Ba, Ca, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, Pb, S, Se, Sr and Zn) in PM10 are presented, as well as SO2 concentration, measured at the sampling site in an urban area of the town of Bor (40,000 inhabitants) in eastern Serbia The sampling site was located in a densely populated city center about 0 65 km away from one of the largest copper mines and copper smelters in Europe For the first time We was collected using the European standard sampler, during a preliminary campaign in duration of 7 days in early spring 2009 PM10 were sampled on PTFE membrane filters and element concentrations were quantified by GF AAS and ICP AES Concentration levels and correlations within trace elements, PM10 and SO2 indicated that industrial activities underpinned with meteorological conditions of low wind speed (calm) are the main factors that influence air pollution in a densely populated area It was evident that both PM10 mass concentration and SO2 concentration once exceeded the daily limit values during a measuring period of seven days Strong relationship was found between PM10 and Mn, Mg, Ca and B daily average concentrations On the other hand, SO2 correlated strongly with As, Pb, Cd, Cu and S daily average concentrations These results confirm the relationship between emissions of SO2 from the Copper Smelter Bor and calm meteorological conditions (wind speed less than 0 5 m/sec) with the concentration levels of carcinogenic substances of arsenic, lead and cadmium in ambient air
