In recent years there has been continuing interest in source apportionment by studying the particles collected by the sampler. These receptor methods of source apportionment are useful for control strategy development. The purpose of this document is to provide a general discussion of the methods used for particle identification, as collected by ambient samplers. This document provides the basic information on the techniques, describes the types and properties of particles, discusses the selection of methods, provides the basic information to evaluate and apply the results of studies, and discusses the parameters to be used to select a laboratory to perform the analyses.
