Lead aerosols in the atmosphere: increasing concentrations.

PMID:  5426776     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The concentrations of atmospheric lead around San Diego, California, have been determined and their geographic and seasonal variations are explained. The lead aerosol concentration at San Diego is increasing at a rate of 5 percent per year. The isotopic composition of lead aerosols is similar to that of the lead additives isolated from gasoline, which are the largest contributors to atmospheric lead pollution.
