This paper analyses the feasibility of studying the composition of the suspended particles in Mexico City, using for this study, an optical method to choose the most appropriate source of emission, depending on the environmental components. The proper choice of the emission source, allows a more correct assessment of the concentration of pollutants and their characteristics, always harmful to human health. To achieve this, is used the Mie scattering calculations, which are performed for spherical particles like here are studied.
