Total, inhalable and fine particulate matter measurements acquired by EPA's Inhalable Particulate Network in 1979 and 1980 are summarized and analyzed in this report. The theoretical collection efficiencies of different samplers were calculated and compared to each other and to an acceptable performance range. The measurement processes and several of the major urban airsheds of the IP Network are described. The spatial, temporal and statistical distributions of these measurements are examined. A receptor-oriented model relating IP to TSP is derived and tested for prediction accuracy under various situations. A mass balance receptor model is applied to IP and FP chemical concentrations in four urban areas to estimate the contributions of various emissions source types to ambient mass concentrations.
