ControlsEmission Controls Description
TotalSum of species percentages for a given profile, excluding organic species, inorganic gases, and elemental sulfur in individual PM profiles. (See Section IV.F “Double Counting Compounds” of the SPECIATE 4.0 report for rationale.)
Reference: PrimaryDesignates a reference as primary. When a profile is based on multiple references, this field allows one reference to be tagged as the primary reference.
