Especiación química y física de metales en la materia particulada atmosférica: aplicación al estudio de la contaminación ambiental de la ciudad de Sevilla

Antonio José Fernández Espinosa

Assessment of pollution must take into account the chemical composition of particulate matter floating in the atmosphere, due to its harmful effects on the environment and living beings. Analysis of metal species, especially heavy metals, is often needed and, at the same time, it reinforces new ways of environmental system control. For instance, this process allows to calculate toxicity levels and air quality depending on the kind and features of particulate matter in it, as professor Antonio José Fernández Espinosa argues in this research.
