Abstract: [1] The source of air pollution must be identified to select the appropriate monitoring activities and remedial measures. The present case study illustrates how analyses of (1) regional-scale synoptics and air mass trajectories, (2) local-scale atmospheric measurements (wind direction and speed, air temperature, dust load, sulfur and nitrogen oxide concentrations in the air, rain amount, and intensity) and (3) chemical and isotopic compositions of rainwater from 46 rain events, collected in the coastal city o…
