Eighteen pairs of dichotomous sampler filters (Teflon) used in collecting ambient aerosol at Houston, Texas, from 10-18 September 1980, have been studied by x-ray diffractionmetry. Although none of the filters analyzed contained aerosol loads sufficiently adequate for optimum XRD analysis, these results compared favorably in many aspects with results obtained by scanning electron microscopy, additional x-ray diffraction work at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, and elemental analyses completed by EPA and other groups.
