The purpose of this document is to present air quality criteria for particulate matter (PM) in accordance with Clean Air Act (CAA) Sections 108 and 109, which govern establishment, review, and revision of U.S. National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The present document is organized into a set of 10 chapters, as follows: Chapter 1 provides a general introduction, including information on legislative requirements and history of the PM NAAQS and an overview of approaches used to prepare this document. Chapters 2, 3 and 5 provide background information on PM atmospheric science, air quality, and human exposure aspects to help place the succeeding discussions of PM health and environmental effects into perspective. Chapter 4 deals with environmental effects of PM on vegetation and ecosystems, visibility, man-made materials, and climate. Human health issues related to PM are addressed in Chapter 6 (Dosimetry); Chapter 7 (Toxicology); and Chapter 8 (Community Epidemiology). Chapter 9 provides an integrative synthesis of key points from the preceding chapters.
