The Technical Assistance Document for Sampling and Analysis of Ozone Precursors was originally issued in 1991 and provided guidance to those responsible for establishing and operating Photochemical Assessment Monitoring Stations (PAMS). The current revision is a major expansion and update of the entire document necessitated by advances in measurement technology of the PAMS target compounds. The guidance in the manual provides detailed technical information to regional, state and local air monitoring organizations on sampling and analytical methodology for the PAMS volatile organic compounds (VOCs), total nonmethane organic compounds (TNMOCs) and selected carbonyl compounds (formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and acetone). Methodology for measurement of NOx is covered, in addition to a discussion of issues associated with measurement of total reactive oxides of nitrogen (NOy). Guidance on meteorological monitoring is also included.
