Modern societies are characterized by increased air pollution, and particulate matter (PM) is one of the most significant air pollutants and is a major environmental health problem. Therefore, long- and short-term exposure via inhalation, ingestion, and dermal absorption of particulate matter may cause series health issues, such as cardio pulmonary and lung cancer disease. Air pollutants accumulation is significantly higher in closed regions or basins characterized by strong thermal inversions, especially during the cold period such in case of the Ciuc basin. The aim of this study was to carry out the time series analysis of PM 2.5 , PM 10 and TSP in the Ciuc basin for the period 2010–2019, in order to decipher the main characteristics of air pollution in this region.
