Guicherit, R. Hoogeveen, A. Instituut voor Milieuhygiëne en Gezondheidstechniek TNO Publication year 1977 Abstract The relative concentrations of hydrocarbons in the atmosphere may provide information concerning their origin. It appears that the hydrocarbon composition measured in Delft (The Netherlands) is entirely different for northern and southern wind directions. This points to different sources. The most important sources for this area are natural gas leaks, traffic, and (petrochemical) industries. It appears that the relative potential of the precursor mix to form peroxyacetylnitrate (PAN) and ozone is also different for both wind directions.Chemicals/CAS: ozone, 10028-15-6; peroxyacetylnitrate, 2278-22-0; Air Pollutants; Air Pollutants, Environmental; Air Pollutants, Occupational; Gases; Vehicle Emissions Subject EnvironmentAir MovementsAir PollutantsAir Pollutants, EnvironmentalAir Pollutants, OccupationalChemical IndustryGasesNetherlandsVehicle EmissionsWind To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:a39eac57-b6ca-458f-9b89-241f677468c4 TNO identifier 228227 ISSN 0048-9697 Source Science of the Total Environment, 7 (3), 269-281 Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
