Relative Significance

As FSP is a fraction of RSP, they share similar emission sources and emission trends. Between 1997 and 2016, FSP emissions decreased by 69%.  Navigation, other combustion and non-combustion sectors were the top three sources of FSP emissions, accounting for 44%, 20% and 14% of total FSP emissions in 2016, respectively.

Similar to RSP, FSP levels measured at the EPD's general air quality monitoring stations did not follow closely with the FSP emission trend, indicating that the ambient FSP originates from both local and regional emission sources.
