Variations of PM concentrations in Wuhan, China


Concentrations of PM (particulate matter as a key urban air pollutant) were obtained from nine monitor stations within the city of Wuhan for analysis after an intensive observational data collection period that commenced in January 2006 and concluded in December 2008. According to our data, PM pollution intensified and reached a high alert level of air pollution during the month of November each year. It remained at a high alert level until the following April where it again decreased to a low alert level during the summer months. During the winter and spring months, the occurrence rate (in percent)of PM was five to eight times higher (high alert level) than measurements detected during the summer months. The effects of intrinsic factors (pollution sources) and remote preconditions (dust storm propagation and formation of secondary aerosol) on severe PM concentrations in Wuhan are first analyzed. After which, suggestions to reduce PM pollutants are provided.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
