High resolution measurements of aerosol concentrations and fluxes have been made in an urban street canyon with busy traffic in the city centre of Manchester, UK. Measurements of aerosol concentrations have been made in 150 size bins covering the range 4.6 nm < Dp < 32 μm. Vertical turbulent fluxes have been measured in the size range 0.1 J.Lm< Dp < 3 μm using the eddy covariance technique. By placing the instruments on a platform lift, some information about vertical profiles has been gained. These measurements have been supplemented by measurements of flow and turbulence using up to four ultrasonic anemometers. Measurements of turbulence were made over three week-long campaigns in February, April and May 2001, whereas turbulence and aerosol measurements were combined for a two-week campaign in October 2001.
