Aerometric data is being collected by the Regional Air Pollution Study (RAPS) for use in developing and evaluating air quality simulation models. In addition to the Regional Air Monitoring System (RAMS), data is also collected by research teams in periodic expeditions to the St. Louis study area. Data from all sources are made available for integration through the RAPS Data Bank. A quality assurance audit of instrument systems employed in the Summer 1975 RAPS Expeditionary Research Program was conducted to check the various systems for accuracy. Additionally such checks provide a basis for determining the extent to which data from different instrument systems may be integrated. This report describes the audit equipment and standards used and problems encountered. Quantitative audit results from individual instrument systems are presented. The audits included analyzers for NO, NOx, O3, SO2, CO, CH4 and THC measurements.
