This report describes and summarizes the activities during the first year of the program named above. The activities described are part of a continuing 5-year program. The purpose of the program is to establish a quality assurance data base for ambient air monitoring in specified geographical areas around present and proposed energy development projects, and to provide technical assistance to enable existing monitoring networks to achieve a high level of data quality. An initial on-site review of 18 laboratories and associated field sites was completed. Regularly scheduled laboratory performance surveys are being carried out for the analysis of sulfate, nitrate, SO2, NO2, and CO and for weight measurement and high volume flow rate. Approximately 10% of the analysis performed by a specified laboratory for metals collected in high volume filters are being repeated in the Rockwell laboratory. Quarterly field audits are being conducted at specified monitoring sites. Technical assistance has been provided to participating monitoring groups, as requested by the Project Officer.
