Many of the dust particles collected as particulate matter deposition have organic origins, ­including pollen, plant parts, algae, and insect parts, as well as carbon from coal particles and soot. The particulate matter appears to be largely organic in nature. 8. 9 mg/kg and showed a high correlation between the amounts of iron and the amounts of PM10. Žitnik et al.

Topič (2009) found that the surface of the iron ore stockpile developed a film that prevented dusting as long as the stockpile was not disturbed.

4 µm) and prepared for processing using SEM. Pieces of filters were fixed on the sample holder using double-sided self-adhesive conductive tape. A thin layer of carbon was deposited on filter samples with Balzers carbon coater. The samples were investigated at 500× magnification. On each sample, up to 12 areas were investigated. The number of particles in each analyzed area was calculated per cm2 of the filter. 02 (normalization to 1 cm2). The result was given as the average number of particles per cm2 of the filter.
