ABSTRACT
Here we compiled data base containing the particulate matter measurements for Moscow megacity air within last 14 years (from 2003 till now). Its design allows replenishing with new data for subsequent years. This data base can be used in decision support systems, modeling and validation. In paper we described used methods and means of particulate matter measurements. For the first time, we made the statistical processing from the dynamical systems theory positions. For the first time, we assessed the contents of black carbon in the air of Moscow megacity area on the base of particulate matter data. We compared our assessments with the similar results of studies in the world including St.-Petersburg megacity (Russia). Platform https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Valery_Abramov2/?ev=hdr_xprf gave excellent opportunities to preliminary discussion and data exchange in the frame of this research. The Ministry of education and science of Russia provides financial support for this research with the state order 2525.2014/166.
