The first phase of a study to develop sampling and analytical methodology for atmospheric nitrates is described. Experiments were carried out to determine the effect of nitrogen-containing gases on a number of different filter materials. Gases studied included NO, NO2, N2O, HNO3, NH3, and PAN. Experiments were also conducted to determine the effect of sampling time and sampling rate on atmospheric nitrate collection. Studies of filter storage, and gas-filtrate and gas-soot interactions were also undertaken. In many cases serious interference with the collection of atmospheric nitrate was found.
