The paper gives results from woodstove source and ambient sampling in Boise, ID. Data are presented for the total chromatographable organic, gravimetric, and gas chromatograph/mass spectrometric analyses of the volatile, semi-volatile, and condensible organic fractions from XAD-2 and filter catches. The samples analyzed were obtained in woodstove chimneys and in ambient locations representing the background, a residential area impacted by woodsmoke, and an urban area impacted by vehicular emissions. Included in the source emissions analysis are samples obtained in a laboratory setting as well as samples collected from houses in the field. Bioassay results on the laboratory samples are also presented. The Boise study was a multi-disciplinary, cross-EPA laboratory effort to apportion sources of mutagenicity in ambient emissions in a woodsmoke-impacted area.
