EPA contracted with Sonoma Technology, Inc. (STI) to conduct an analysis of the collocated filter-based and semi-continuous data collected during this study. Beyond the 54 STN sites, the EPA speciation network has an additional component of state and local-directed supplemental monitoring sites called SLAMS (State and Local Air Monitoring Stations). The SLAMS comprise a very dynamic network that is currently comprised of about 200 sites placed to meet state and local air monitoring needs. The goal is to determine if the commercially-available semi-continuous carbon, nitrate, and sulfate monitors used in this study are sufficiently robust to allow routine application in the speciation monitoring network.
