This document describes the data base of University of California, Riverside, environmental chamber experiments for use when evaluating photochemical mechanisms for urban and regional airshed models. This document lists and summarizes the experiments, summarizes the facility and procedures employed, documents the analytical and monitoring methods and their calibration data and associated uncertainties, assigns and documents the input data needed to conduct model simulations of the experiments in the present data base, and describes the format of the data sets. Files are included in the distribution to permit modeling of the experiments in the present data base using the SAPRC-90 and the Carbon Bond IV chemical mechanisms, though a full mechanism evaluation procedure is beyond the scope of this report. Recommendations are made concerning the steps that need to be taken before using these data to evaluate chemical mechanisms.
