PM2.5 chemical speciation sampling is included in the monitoring requirements promulgated as part of the PM2.5 National Ambient Air Quality Standards. Under this requirement EPA will establish a PM2.5 chemical speciation network of approximately 50 core NAMS for routine speciation monitoring. This network will be used to provide a nationally consistent set of data for the assessment of trends and provide long term characterization of PM constituents. This network will also be used as a model for up to 250 additional speciation sites established by the States for information that may aid the development of State Implementation Plans. A vital consideration for these PM speciation monitoring sites is data comparability. EPA initially chose three samplers for consideration under the National Sampler Contract. The data under consideration in this study were collected from February 2000 through July 2000 at 13 sites across the nation with co-located samplers, in an effort to evaluate the consistency of these three samplers. Further data were collected in August 2000 to examine some special issues.
