The Ohio River Valley Study was initiated to gather air quality data at sites representative of regional conditions in an area where current coal usage and projected increases are exceptionally large. This report describes procedures for site location and for station preparation, operation, and periodic audits. Data summaries are presented for the period May through December 1980. Measurements included atmospheric concentrations of nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, ozone, and peroxyacetyl nitrate; local meteorology; aerosol mass and composition; total suspended particulate; and precipitation. Special analysis for speciation of sulfur aerosols began in December 1980. Measurements of nitric acid and ammonia were made during the summer of 1981; results will be presented in a subsequent report.
