Abstract: A number of techniques, such as principal component analysis and factor analysis, have been used in receptor modelling where measured aerosol composition at the sampling site are analysed in order to determine the likely source contributions. In this study factor analysis with nonnegative factor elements has been carried out using two techniques as implemented in the PMF2 and ME2 computer codes. The various analysis techniques provided by the two programs are illustrated using measured data at Hong Kong as a case study, which covers a period of three years (2001 to 2003). Both analysis techniques resulted in similar results which are presented in this report. Data bootstrapping was also carried out as an additional check on the quality of the results.
