Item Number: OFS06-01

This digital atlas of anthropogenic particles has been compiled by Commission II ICCP working group Environmental Applications of Coal and Organic Petrology.The atlas includes 543 images; most images were taken under a reflected light microscope (both with dry objective and in oil), although some images are included from scanning electron microscopes (SEM) and transmission electron microscopes (TEM). The main purpose of this atlas is to help to identify and describe anthropogenic particles from any environment or site of occurrence and determine their source. Images are grouped into two sections: 1) anthropogenic particles classified by source, including particles from well-defined sources (for example, power plants, coke plants); and 2) anthropogenic particles classified by the site of their occurrence (for example, soil, air, water).
