Volume I of the Receptor Model Technical Series presents an overview of current particulate source apportionment methods and their applications to control strategy development programs. It is the first in a series of documents describing methods which can be used to identify source impacts, using data collected at the receptor. This is unlike source (dispersion) models that estimate source strengths based on emission factors, plume behavior and meteorology. Volume II of the series describes the Chemical Mass Balance Receptor Model in detail. Future volumes will describe other receptor model techniques. Information presented in this series is directed to regulatory professionals responsible for particulate control strategy development or related programs requiring source apportionment analysis. Major receptor methods are discussed, applications to control strategy development are presented and areas in which receptor models compliment source (dispersion) models are explored. Properly applied, and with supportive evidence developed through independent approaches, receptor models can be used independently or in concert with dispersion models, to provide important new information to regulatory agencies.
