Urban areas are significant sources of various types of pollutants, especially particles. Dust particles are due to their size and chemical composition the major environmental problem. This study monitored the dust particles concentration in the air during a two year at the traffic loaded roads of Prague and Kladno, tested possible reduction of airborne dust in the atmosphere by the absorption on the surface of leaves of suitable plants, and discussed the possibility of the influence of the eruption of Iceland volcano Eyjafjallajökull on the quantity and composition of dust particles in the atmosphere.
