In this paper, the metal contents of atmospheric PM10 coming from urban,
industrial and urban kerbside sites in Istanbul are investigated. PM 10 samples were
collected at 10 stations which are located European and Asian side of the city. Dust
samples collected on Glass fiber filters were digested and selected metals (Pb, Cu, Cd)
were analyzed using by AAS ( Atomic Absorption Spectrometry). The metal levels
ranged from 0.005 ug/m3 for Cd and 2.920 ug/m3 for Pb. On the whole, the order of
increasing metal concentration in urban, industrial and urban kerbside followed the
order respectively: Cd<Pb<Cu, Cd<Cu<Pb and Cd<Pb<Cu.
