Abstract

BC data have obtained at a coastal station in Hong Kong during the period between April 2011 and January 2012. Seasonal variation has been shown that higher BC concentrations were measured in cold season while lower concentrations were in warm season. Two episodes were observed in warm and cold seasons and the results confirmed the influence of long range transport from the polluted area. Both absorption and scattering coefficients of aerosol and gas NO2have also been analyzed. The results suggest the connection between aerosol particles and the visibility.
