The report is a user guide to the Project Profile System (PPS), a computerized data base on projects of various types that pertain to specific industrial categories. PPS is one of five data bases which are components of the Environmental Assessment Data Systems (EADS), designed to aid researchers in environmental assessment, emissions characterization, and control technology development. PPS contains data from nine general projects: source monitoring; integrated assessment; transport, transportation, and fate; socioeconomics; sampling methods development; fuels; control technology; ecological effects; and health effects. Each project described in the PPS is identified by its sponsor, contractor, and other administrative information. The PPS contains an abstract of each project reported in text form and lists pertinent references. The specific data in the PPS depends largely on the type of project being reported; however, sufficient detail is available to report on a particular pollutant being sought or identified during the project. The PPS does not give results (e.g., pollutant concentrations, process data); it tells what the project involved. The guide gives detailed instructions for encoding PPS datasets, defines procedures for submitting and retrieving data, and contains standard nomenclature to facilitate data encoding. The guide also discusses procedures to access PPS.
