Short summary
Organic aerosol constitutes one of the major components of atmospheric particulate matter globally and is emitted from various sources. Therefore, identifying and quantifying the sources of organic aerosol accurately is a key task in the field. In this study, we applied a rather novel procedure for an improved source apportionment method (ME-2) to resolve the less meaningful or mixed factors problems for organic aerosol using the traditional method (PMF).
Organic aerosol constitutes one of the major components of atmospheric particulate matter...
