Abstract A compendium of techniques is provided which describes approximately 25 techniques for analysis and interpretation of ambient particulate data. The techniques can be grouped categorically as follows: Temporal Patterns; Spatial Patterns; Meteorological Effects; Emissions Assessment; Interpreting Chemical, Elemental and Morphological Data; and Interpreting Particle Size Data. The techniques are described briefly, and references for a more thorough treatise of the subject are provided. The techniques span a range of complexity, cost and effectiveness. They are evaluated in terms of cost effectiveness and resource requirements. The digest provides the user with guidelines on the use of the techniques in terms of their problem applicability, resource requirements and interrelationships. It provides a framework for designing studies or analyses to interpret data from ambient particulate or any similar pollutant.
