Summary  

Conditional stability constants have been determined for U(IV) and U(VI) Boom Clay humic acid (BCHA) and Aldrich humic acid (AHA) complexes, under anaerobic and carbonate free conditions. The constants are needed for nuclear waste repository performance assessment purposes. The U(IV) constants were obtained by developing an approach based on the solubility product of amorphous U(OH)4. The U(VI) constants were obtained by applying the Schubert ion-exchange approach.

Abstract  

Summertime urban PM2.5 was collected on cellulose filters in downtown Toronto, using a customized air sampler (635 l/min). Mass concentrations for up to 19 trace elements/ions were measured by ICP-AES, INAA and IC. Source apportionment was performed on these results including additional carbon and total mass concentrations using positive matrix factorization (PMF). PMF factors exhibited trends that indicated soil (18%), stationary (19%), secondary (48%), and vehicle (15%) sources. Potential source contribution function (PSCF) analysis identified probable sources of the stationary and secondary PM2.5 as originating from the south and southwest of Toronto.
