	%X The main objective of this study was to assess the
annual concentration and seasonal variation of benzo(a)pyrene (BaP)
associated with PM10 in an urban site of Győr and in a rural site of
Sarród in the sampling period of 2008–2012. A total of 280 PM10
aerosol samples were collected in each sampling site and analyzed for
BaP by gas chromatography method. The BaP concentrations ranged
from undetected to 8 ng/m3 with the mean value of 1.01 ng/m3 in the
sampling site of Győr, and from undetected to 4.07 ng/m3 with the
mean value of 0.52 ng/m3 in the sampling site of Sarród, respectively.
Relatively higher concentrations of BaP were detected in samples
collected in both sampling sites in the heating seasons compared with
non-heating periods. The annual mean BaP concentrations were
comparable with the published data of different other Hungarian
sites.
