Particulate Data Reduction (PADRE) system is an interactive computer program that facilitates entry, reduction, and analysis of cascade impactor data for particle size distributions. PADRE was developed to ensure the quality of data included in the Fine Particle Emissions Information System (FPEIS), a component of the Environmental Assessment Data Systems (EADS). Users control the logical flow through the system in response to prompts from the program. PADRE can be used to store, review, edit, & analyze data. Impactor stage cut points are calculated, and cumulative & differential mass concentrations are determined and interpolated to standard diameters. Document describes how to access and use PADRE and summarizes its logic and capabilities.
