The Integrated Air Cancer Project (IACP) is a multiyear US EPA research program established to develop and evaluate methods required to identify the principal airborne carcinogens, determine emission sources, and improve the estimate of comparative human cancer risk. The first major field study designed to examine a residential wood combustion airshed was conducted in Boise, Idaho during the 1986-1987 winter heating season. The second major field study conducted in Roanoke, Virgina during the 1988-1989 was to study residential oil heating and wood combustion. Motor vehicle emissions were considered a major combustion product contributor in both airsheds. This paper describes two critical components of the project. The first component is the sample custody and tracking of the samples before analysis. The second component describes the data management of the sample field data (eg. sample site, time, date, flow rate) as well as the analytical data (eg. mutagenicity, particle concentrations) for the environmental samples.
