The need of the study and the characterization of aerosols in different regions of the planet and in different periods of the year is evident because of the wide range of aerosol types and compositions, sizes, numerous sources, large spatial and temporal variability, as well as their important impacts on different fields (human health, climate, ecosystems, etc.)

Three different aspects will be discussed, focusing on the characterization and the transport of atmospheric aerosol: 1) in the Toulouse (France) urban environment in the frame of the CAPITOUL (Canopy and Aerosol Particles Interaction in TOulouse Urban Layer) project and their influence in neighbouring rural areas; 2) originating from the burning of two types of biomass, in the frame of two different processes: a forest fire and cereal waste burning and 3) on a background EMEP (European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme) station located in Viznar (Grenade, Spain).
