Abstract
This document is one volume of a sixteen-volume report presenting an overall assessment of the particulate problem, which was conducted by GCA/Technology Division for EPA. This particular document is one of fourteen single-area volumes that provide working summaries of data gathered in the fourteen urban areas studied. These city reports primarily provide documentation and background information for Volume I of the study - National Assessment of the Particulate Problem - Final Report (PB-263 665). Volume I should be considered the primary output of the report. The Division of Air Pollution Control of the Rhode Island State Department of Health currently samples for total suspended particulates at 21 sites in the state, three of which are NASN sites. The network is primarily oriented toward sampling in suburban areas - only four centercity monitors are located outside of Providence and one monitor, a NASN station, is in a rural area. All of the monitors are considered to be in population-oriented locations.
