Particulate air pollution has been associated with increased mortality during episodes of high pollution concentrations.
The relationship at lower concentrations has been more controversial, as has the relative role of particles and sulfur dioxide.
Replication has been difficult because suspended particle concentrations are usually measured only every sixth day in the U.S. This study used concurrent measurements of total suspended particulates (TSP) and airport visibility from every sixth day sampling for 10 years to fit a predictive model for TSP.
