Short summary
This study investigates the PM2.5 variability in the Klang Valley urban-industrial environment. Source apportionment analysis reveals two major contributors of PM2.5 in the study area: secondary inorganic aerosols and biomass burning. The chemical constituents and sources of PM2.5 in this study area were greatly influenced and characterised by meteorological and gaseous parameters which largely vary with season.
