The report is a user guide to the Gaseous Emissions Data System (GEDS), a computerized data base on gaseous emissions from stationary point sources. GEDS 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. GEDS contains data from source sampling which may include: design and typical operating data on control technology applied to the gaseous 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 gaseous samples; process descriptions of the sources; and descriptions of the sampling equipment and techniques employed. The GEDS protocol is consistent with Level 1 and 2 reporting requirements. The guide gives detailed instructions for encoding GEDS data sets, defines procedures for submitting and retrieving data, and contains standard nomenclature to facilitate data encoding. The guide also includes a program library that describes analytical software available to the user and provides instructions for its use. The guide also discusses procedures which will allow its users to access GEDS directly by computer or through the EPA project officer.
