The chapter provides information to design a measurement program to obtain ambient aerosol data for use in receptor models. Other chapters in the book show how receptor models are used in air quality management and how species concentrations are used in receptor models. Methods are described for obtaining ambient PM-10 aerosol data for use in these receptor models. Characteristics of PM-10 sampling devices, filter media and laboratory analysis procedures are described. The latter included x-ray fluorescence, neutron activation, optical spectroscopy, pyrolysis, ion chromatography and colorimetry. It is shown that some combinations of filter medium, sampler and analysis method are incompatible, and information is presented so that incompatibility can be avoided. Measurement artifacts for ionic species and annular denuder systems for avoiding them are described.
