Here we present a comparison of Black Carbon (BC) levels in Mexico City and Chicago during two periods before and during holidays when diesel fuel use was reduced. In April 2003, as part of the Mexico City Metropolitan Area (MCMA) 2003 air quality study, we measured the abundance of BC at a time resolution of 2–5 min by using a seven-channel aethalometer (Thermo Anderson). Data were collected before and during the Easter holiday to assess changes in aerosol loadings as a function of vehicle traffic levels.
