Abstract: Atmospheric fine particle in Guiyang City was collected with Laoying Model 2050 during May 2016 to April 2017 and measured for black carbon (BC) using Aethalometer (SootScanTM Model OT21). Results showed that concentrations of BC ranged from 1.17 to 12.77 μg/m3, with an average of 5.19±1.91 μg/m3. Seasonal variation of BC was in the order of winter > autumn > spring ≈ summer. Significantly positive correlations between BC and PM2.5 (R2=0.64, P < 0.01) as well as between potassium ion (R2=0.31, P < 0.01) were observed. Sources apportionment suggested BC originated from fossil fuels (51.9%), biomass burning dust (32.4%), and catering fume emissions (15.7%). Cluster analyses on back-trajectories illustrated that the impacted air mass mainly came from domestic regions, and was controlled by dominant wind directions in Guiyang.

Key word: Black carbon; Seasonal variation; Influencing factors; Source apportionment
