The objectives of this program were to provide guidelines for the development of quality assurance programs applicable to measuring pollutants for which National Ambient Air Quality Standards have been promulgated. Specifically, guidelines were written for the reference methods for measuring suspended particulates, carbon monoxide, photochemical oxidants, sulfur dioxide, and one tentative method for the continuous measurement of nitrogen dioxide (chemiluminescent). This final report contains sections on: (1) the individual measurement methods which include any data and analyses used to arrive at suggested performance standards in the respective field documents and discussions of the methods used to treat areas where sufficient field data were not available; (2) background information directly applicable to the Management Manual sections in the field documents in the form of a broader and more rigorous mathematical treatment of the subject areas in that manual; and, (3) recommendations for implementation of quality assurance programs, areas requiring further study, and conclusions arrived at as the result of this program.
