The main goal /Challenge:
Оbtain new knowledge about the concentrations and spatio-temporal variations of some biologically and ecologically significant species in particulate matter in Bulgaria with the use of unique modern methodology and devices for carbon and carbon containing species (BC/BrC and PAHs) in PM2.5.

Research objectives:

Capacity Building Objectives:

Funding: Competition for financial support of fundamental research – 2019, National Science Found, Ministry of Education and Science

Expected results:
The main expected results relate to the acquisition of new knowledge in the field of atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric physics and ecology. In general, they refer to carbon concentrations (BC / BrC) and 19 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the PM2.5 fraction in urban conditions in the country. In particular:
