The report is a user guide to the Fine Particle Emissions Information System (FPEIS), a computerized data base on particulate emissions from stationary point sources. The FPEIS is one of four waste stream data bases which are components of the Environmental Assessment Data Systems (EADS). The EADS concept has been designed to aid researchers in environmental assessment, emissions characterization, and control technology development. The FPEIS contains data from source sampling which may include: particle size distributions; design and typical operating data on control technology applied to the particle-laden effluent stream; analysis of any fuel or feedstock to the process producing the effluent stream; results of chemical, physical, radiological, and biological/ecological tests of particulate samples; process descriptions of the sources; and descriptions of the sampling equipment and techniques employed. The FPEIS protocol is consistent with Level 1 and 2 reporting requirements. The guide gives detailed instructions for encoding FPEIS data sets, defines procedures for submitting and retrieving data, and contains standard nomenclature to facilitate data encoding. It also contains a program library that describes analytical software available to the user and provides instructions for its use. The report also discusses procedures which will allow its users to access the FPEIS.
