Table 4 Relative quantity of WSOC and UV BC/IR BC in Bamako and Dakar PM samples

From: Physico-chemical characterization of African urban aerosols (Bamako in Mali and Dakar in Senegal) and their toxic effects in human bronchial epithelial cells: description of a worrying situation

  Bamako Dakar
WSOC/OC 0.8 0.25
UV BC/IR BC 1 0.75
  1. WSOC = water soluble organic carbon; UV BC/IR BC = light adsorption of black carbon (BC) in ultraviolets and infrared. Results are presented for bulk aerosols and globally for Bamako site.
