A gas chromatography laboratory was set up to analyze air samples collected in Teflon bags and stainless steel tanks. Samples were analyzed for total hydrocarbons, methane, CO, and C2-C10 hydrocarbons. A total of 455 samples, including replicates, were analyzed during the summer and fall of 1976. Many samples were collected at 12 of the Regional Air Monitoring Systems (RAMS) sites to yield data on spatial and temporal distributions of hydrocarbons. Additional sampling was performed to study ethylene contamination in and around RAMS stations. Roadway samples were collected to determine the composition of freshly emitted vehicular pollution. Quality control audits indicated good system performance during the study. Replicate samples indicated good reproducibility for samples stored for as long as six days in the Teflon bags. All data, including sums of paraffins, olefins, aromatic, and total non-methane hydrocarbons are stored in the RAPS Data Bank at Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
