Short summary
The major finding of this study lies in the new pragmatic coupled radiocarbon–LVG apportionment scheme, which allows assessment of the contribution of the major carbonaceous species from fossil fuel combustion, biomass burning and biogenic sources with a reasonable uncertainty, and without coupling of thermal or separation methods with an AMS for rather small amounts of samples.
