    What constitutes particulate matter? Pollen, industrial stack waste, diesel exhaust? This information is important and helpful. Thanks.

      Hi Pokerfarian, thanks for asking. Particle pollution, is a complex mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets that get into the air, according the the EPA. It varies greatly. It would be useful information, but the exact makeup of the particulate matter is not available for specific days in most cases.
