Definition
Particulate matter concentrations refer to fine suspended particulates of less than 10 microns in diameter (PM10) that can penetrate deeply into the respiratory tract and cause significant health damage. The estimates represent the average annual exposure level of the average urban resident to outdoor particulate matter. A country's state of technology and pollution control is an important determinant of particulate matter concentrations.
