Spectra of absorption indices and data on gross chemical composition for two size classes of water soluble and dust fractions of high-volume aerosol samples are presented for several locations (mainly Bedford, Massachusetts; Meppen in Germany; Riverside and San Nicolas Island in California and some maritime locations). The absorption data were obtained by the KBr-pressed disk method. It has been found that regrinding of the pellets increases the absorption by salt samples considerably.
