The guideline document describes procedures that can be used to demonstrate attainment of the particulate matter standards for those sites that do not satisfy the minimum data requirements. In order to apply these procedures, minimum quarterly data requirements must be met. The procedures involve the substitution of appropriate data for the missing samples; collocated TSP can be substituted for missing PM 10 samples, and substitutions from available monitoring data are also allowed. Under certain conditions, model-derived estimates of annual means and number of exceedances may also be used. Four examples demonstrate the use of the procedures under various scenarios.
