A collaborative research study on the physical and chemical properties of Los Angeles smog aerosol was undertaken by a group of investigators. One of the prime goals of the study was to carry out a comprehensive, collaborative, effort, using a sufficient variety of chemical and aerosol measurement techniques on the same aerosol at the same place at the same time, so that a significant improvement in the correlations between various measurements could be made. The experiments were divided into the following main categories: (1) Meausrement of the number versus size spectra measurements using the automated Minnesota Aerosol Analyzing System, (2) Sampling of the aerosol by lundgren impactor for mass and chemical composition versus size distribution, (3) Continuous gas analyzers, (4) Turbidimetric measurements, (5) Miscellaneous experiments including: cloud condensation and ice nuclei, samples for electron microscope and single particle chemicalanalysis, humidity effects, smog making in a bag, smog coagulation in a bag and particle beam experiments.
