Abstract  

Atmospheric particulate material collected in Ankara was analyzed by instrumental neutron activation analysis. The results are interpreted with respect to trace element concentrations of the earth's crust. Volatile elements such as As, Sb, Zn, Br and Hg are highly enriched suggesting noncrustal origin. Enrichment factors increase with decreasing particle size.
