This report discusses and characterizes 50 high PM15 site-days selected from the Inhalable Particulate (IP) Network over the years 1979 to 1982. The study is intended to characterize the potential causes of high PM10 concentrations in the U.S., and therefore the correlation between PM10 and PM15 levels is shown and discussed. The available PM10 data are too sparse to support the study by themselves. The PM15 data from the IP Network were analyzed with respect to five hypothetical causes of elevated concentrations: (1) local industrial emissions; (2) local nonindustrial emissions; (3) regional secondary particle events; (4) meteorological factors, such as stagnation and inversion; and (5) measurement anomalies.
