Supplementary Material

We provide field blank values of each chemical species, showing quality control and quality assurance for this study, and detailed the observed concentrations of ionic species and metals across 11 sampling sites, as well as the sampling equipment used to collect ambient PM2.5 samples. In addition, inter-correlation results among each pair of ionic species for each site and spatial trends in concentrations of ionic species across the sampling sites are provided.
