Abstract

Abstract Lead concentrations were determined in total suspended particulate matter (TSP) from August 1975 to April 1978, in two districts of Rio de Janeiro with different sources of airborne particulate matter. Correlation coefficients between lead content in gasoline and average atmospheric lead concentrations are calculated. Results show a clear effect in the atmosphere if there is a large increase in the lead content of consumed gasoline.
