This document represents Volume II of a 5-volume quality assurance (QA) handbook series dedicated to air pollution measurement systems. Volume II is dedicated to the Ambient Air Quality Surveillance Program and the data collection activities of that program. The intent of the document is twofold. The first is to provide additional information and guidance on the material covered in the Code of Federal Regulations pertaining to the Ambient Air Quality Surveillance Program. The second is to establish a set of consistent QA practices that will improve the quality of the nation's ambient air data and ensure data comparability among sites across the nation. Therefore, the document is written for technical personnel at State and local monitoring agencies and is intended to provide enough information to develop a quality for ambient air quality monitoring.
