This document is the Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) for all operations involved in the PM2.5 Chemical Speciation Network (CSN). The original QAPP was issue in 2000 as the CSN was being deployed. The CSN has evolved over time due to the advent of the NCore monitoring network prescribed by rulemaking in October 2006 and the most dramatic changes in 2008-2010, when the national network of samplers were consolidated to Metone SASS or SuperSASS and URG 3000N. This version of the QAPP reflects that transition and a few new quality control checks that are recommended to provide a better tracking process for deleterious changes in sampler flow rates. The approach to utilizing collocated samplers for network precision has also been expanded to a redeploy the collocated samplers at half of the historic, fixed collocation sites to annual assignments that rotate among the other NCore sites.
