||Air quality sampling instruments, if operated on a regular schedule with consistent sampling and analytical procedures, will produce data to allow long-term trends and short-term excursions in air pollutant levels to be identified. By proper location of samplers, maximal and minimal (background) concentrations can be quantified, as well as pollutant levels near centers of population, hospitals and other areas of interest. The first part of the document contains descriptions of the existing air pollution control programs in the State of Alaska, detailed discussions of the existing air quality data, and a definition of an air quality surveillance program which will meet the minimum federal requirements as defined by the Federal Register. Then described are procedures which will be used in sample collection, sample analysis, and data handling. In the State of Alaska, it is important that the air quality monitoring program define the existing problems in such detail that cause- and- effect relationships can be developed to both solve existing problems and prevent the perpetuation of problems in the future. A section address this aspect of the surveillance program. Finally a timetable for completion and resource requirements is given. (Author)
