AbstractThe aim of the present study is to assess the current level of atmospheric heavy metal pollution of aerosols indifferent cities of North Egypt using the neutron activation analysis and optical emission inductively coupled plasma techniques. The results revealed that the highest concentrations of particulate matter PM10 and total suspended particulate matter were close to industrial areas. From the results of the enrichment factor calculations, the most significant elements of anthropogenic origin are Ba,Sb,Ce and Zn.
