A comprehensive hydrocarbon database was obtained at sites in the Atlanta metropolitan area during the summer of 1990. Samples were collected in stainless steel canisters and analyzed for 54 hydrocarbon species plus total non-methane organic compounds (TNMOC). The contributions of the major sources of TNMOC at each of the 6 sites were estimated through a procedure called Chemical Mass Balance (CMB) receptor modeling. Spatial variability of the source contributions is discussed. Results of the CMB analysis for one of the sites are compared with the emission inventory for Atlanta using several different approaches.
