EPA is developing an empirical model to relate ambient air quality to particulate emissions and land use in the surrounding area. This receptor-oriented model will be used for evaluating the effect of particulate control measures on concentrations at individual sites in a sampling network or for predicting air quality at a location where there is no sampler. Several studies have indicated that there is a statistically significant relationship between particulate concentrations measured at a high volume sampler and the emission density within a limited radius surrounding that site. The present report summarizes information for sites in the St. Louis area. The 23 high volume sampling sites inventoried in the St. Louis area have a wide distribution of exposures ranging from industrial to background. The data collected for 11 of the sites are presented in Chapter 3. The data collected by Rockwell for the RAMS sites are presented in Chapter 4. These data have been revised to correspond to the format of the other 11 sites. The methodology for performing the microinventories in St. Louis is presented in Chapter 2.
