Abstract

Abstract Four field campaigns over the period November 1993 to August 1994 were undertaken on the island of South Uist, off the northwest coast of Scotland as part of the BMCAPE project. Measurements were made of the concentration and chemical composition of aerosol particles, utilising a variety of instruments. Sulphur and nitrogen gas species were also measured throughout these campaigns, together with appropriate meteorological parameters. A variety of air mass types were encountered during the campaigns and the relationship between the physical and chemical aerosol properties are discussed in terms of air mass histories and season factors.
