Abstract
An instrument developed by LBL for the routine measurement of aerosol mass using the beta-gauge particle attenuation method is described and evaluated. Factors affecting the precision and accuracy of the measurement are discussed in detail. Results of intercomparison studies between the beta-gauge method and conventional gravimetric are presented. The design of the present instrument is particularly well suited for the automatic analysis of membrane filters obtained from modern dichotomous samplers.
