Abstract
A two-step objective method is presented for determining the optimum number and disposition of ambient air quality stations in a monitoring network. The method uses a data base consisting of a comprehensive set of simulated or measured air quality patterns representative of the region of interest. In the first step, the most desirable monitoring locations are identified and ranked. The minimum number of required locations is determined in the second step through eliminating redundancies among the locations identified in the first step with regard to spatial coverage over the region of interest. As a demonstration, the method is applied to the Las Vegas Valley of Nevada for the pollutant species carbon monoxide.
