Because of the increased concern for the regional nature of secondary air pollutants (e.g., sulfates and oxidants) the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sponsored a major field program in the northeastern United States during the summer of 1980. Two EPA field programs were actually carried out simultaneously. One addressed persistent elevated pollution episodes, and the other continued the 1979 northeast regional oxidant study in developing part of the data base for the regional oxidant model. Field activities were based in Columbus, OH. Ten research aircraft and several mobile and stationary surface monitoring platforms from three EPA Contractors, seven Federal Agencies and four Universities participated in the intensive measurement program between 16 July and 15 August 1980. Pollutants measured included SO2, NO, NOx, O3, sulfate, nitrate, and aerosols. This report describes the Contractors' activities. Their aircraft logged over 350 flight hours in 100 missions ranging as far east as Laconia, NH, as far south as Montgomery, AL, as far west as Texarkana, AR, and as far north as Saginaw, MI. Descriptive analyses are summarized for urban plume missions and regional missions. The quality assurance program is described, showing the efforts made to develop a well coordinated data base. Sources for reports and data are provided.
