|Summary||For the first time, the chemical (organic) properties of the aerosols in Hong Kong were studied in detail. It was found that all samples collected in the three-year study contained anthropogenic contributions and the levels were relatively high compared to earlier studies carried out in China (Simoneit et al., 1991). PAH were also found to exist in high concentrations in all samples.|
