ABSTRACT
The distribution of PM10 and PM2.5 particles with respect to size is an important physical parameter affectingpublic health. During January – February 2009, a trial was developed. It aimed the quantification of the PM10 and PM2.5particles from the air in the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine Cluj – Napoca, using thefacilities of the mobile Laboratory of Air Quality Control. The particulate matter was gravimetrically quantifiedaccording to the stipulations of the SR EN 12341: 2002, and the air sample is directly aspired with a Sven – Lackelsystem. The PM10 and PM2.5 indices had values within admitted limit (50 μg/m3), but with large variability 63.33% forPM10 and 77.71% for PM2.5. Moderate correlation was established between PM10 and PM2.5 values during experimentalinterval (r = 0.55960).
