Abstract
The purpose of this contract was to test and evaluate instrumentation based on specified measurement principles selected for the Regional Air Pollution Study (RAPS). The primary objective of the program was to equip an experimental trailer with selected instrumentation and to evaluate these instruments at a non-urban site to: determine if the monitors selected for the study can meet the required performance specifications or need to be modified; determine the operating environment needed to obtain optimum performance from these monitors; evaluate the latest calibration techniques and select calibration procedures to provide the most reliable measurements; and recommend, based on the results of the evaluation program, instrumentation for use in the RAPS program. Instrumentation for the measurement of ozone, sulfur compounds (sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, total sulfur), nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, hydrocarbons (total hydrocarbon, methane, non-methane hydrocarbon) and carbon monoxide in ambient air were included in the program.
