Abstract

It has far been an interest to many scientists to study on aerosols. Apart from just determining atmospheric concentrations and the level of pollution, various properties of aerosols and their relative compositions can be used to comment on their natural and anthropogenic sources or their local and distant sources. Among various techniques, interpretation of the relation of sources to the size distributions of aerosols, and their size dependent solubilities have been shortly summarized here. Finally, sequential sampling of rain has been mentioned as a tool to distinguish between local and distant sources of various atmospheric components.
