Pollution due to atmospheric particulate matter has been shown to have a considerable impact on health, climate, ecosystems, buildings and visibility. Legislation on the levels of atmospheric particulate matter has undergone changes in recent years. The implementation of the Directive 1999/30/CE has brought about changes in the control of air quality by regulating PM10, and by establishing stricter limits. Moreover, PM2.5 will also be regulated (Proposal of the Directive Clean Air For Europe of October 2006). As regards emissions of particulate matter, the Directive 1996/61/CE, IPPC, has brought about significant changes to the previous legislation. Prior studies on the ceramic producing area of Castellón showed that levels of particulate matter and some trace elements were relatively high. A detailed study was therefore carried out in the period 2002-2005 to assess the levels and composition of particulate matter in the ceramic zone of Castellón, identify emission sources and to evaluate the impact on air quality of the implementation of corrective measures in some industrial premises. Thus, it was sought to establish goals of air quality and to devise a plan of action to reduce emissions and thereby improve air quality. Data on atmospheric dynamics of the study area was collected given its bearing on the dispersion and transport of pollutants. Thus, atmospheric dynamics is characterised by two situations. In winter, it is dominated by the synoptic circulation adapted to the orography, with the prevalence of NW winds. In summer, there are mesoscale circulations of daily periodicity (sea and land breeze, valley and mountain breeze), so that ESE-SEE winds prevail during the day (sea breeze), while NW winds prevail during the night (nocturnal drainage). For the selection of the monitoring sites to study the air quality of the area, two intensive campaigns were carried out in the summer 2002 and in the winter 2002-2003. These campaigns consisted in sampling and chemical analysis of PM10 at ten sites in the area. Subsequently, four sites were selected as representative of the PM10 levels and composition for use in the continuous study 2002-2005: L'Alcora-PM, Vila-real, Onda and Borriana-residencia. Moreover, data of PM10 recorded at two additional sites (Almassora and Borriana-rural) were used. During the period 2002-2005, the levels of PM10 were relatively homogeneous and constant at the selected sites of the study area (33-37 µg/m3 as annual means at urban sites and 25-29 µg/m3 at the subrban site of Onda). The levels at Onda are lower than those at the other sites due to the location of this site in a sub-basin slightly isolated from the Millars basin (which dominates the transport of pollutants from the main industrial area) with the result that it is less influenced by industrial emissions. The levels at Borriana-rural and Almassora (32-38 µg/m3 of PM10) were similar to those at the urban sites, although they are suburban sites. This is probably due to their location, which receives more… Advisors/Committee Members: [email protected] (authoremail), true (authoremailshow), Querol Carceller, Xavier (director), Monfort Gimeno, Eliseo (director).
