The anticipated change in the form of the particulate matter standard from total suspended particulate to matter with aerodynamic diameter equal to or less than 10 micrometers PM(sub 10) will require, in some instances, more sophisticated approaches to identifying primary sources of PM(sub 10). This is the sixth document in a series of user oriented receptor modeling guidance. Over the past twelve years, a number of multivariate methods have been used to determine the sources of mass emitted in a number of cities. This document focuses primarily on the FA/MR technique. However, the procedures required to identify potential tracers or source profiles and to validate the results are applicable to all.
