The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering promulgating a new ambient air quality standard for inhalable particles (IP). An immediate consequence of the new standard will be the specification of a federal reference method for measuring inhalable particles. Two workshops concerned with this subject were sponsored by EPA's Environmental Monitoring Systems Laboratory. The first workshop was held at Research Triangle Park, North Carolina on October 1 and 2, 1980. At this workshop recent developments in particle sampling were presented. Tentative test procedures for demonstrating sampler performance were also discussed. The second workshop was held at Fort Collins, Colorado on November 18-20, 1980. Testing procedures and wind tunnel requirements were formulated and/or revised during this workshop.
