  • Interest in the chemistry of precipitation has been rekindled in recent years over the concern with its acidity as caused by anthropogenic emissions. A number of sampling and analyzing projects have been started, each producing its own data sets. Whether or not the data from these activities are comparable depends on the control of the quality of the measurement activities. The design attributes and operational characteristics of measurement networks that would yield comparable data, have recently been delineated. The preliminary conclusions from this assessment is that the major networks are likely to be producing comparable data. This study provides amore » perspective on the roles of quality control and quality assurance, summarizes the desirable network attributes and operation characteristics, and presents some findings on the extent and quality of the data from an extensive monitoring network operated since 1979 in the eastern USA.« less
  • Analyses of environmental samples of known homogeneity by different laboratories often disagree seriously. Discrepant data may result from poor methodology, improper instrument calibration, faulty experimental techniques, or from a combination of these factors. One approach towards obtaining accurate data is through the use of Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) issued by the National Bureau of Standards under federal statutes. SRMs are homogeneous, stable materials with certified chemical or physical properties, and are used in calibrating instruments, validating laboratory data, development methods of known accuracy, and referring data from different laboratories to a common base. Of the approximately 900 SRMs listed inmore » the current SRM catalog, over 90 have been developed for use in improving the accuracy of environmental analyses. Environmental matrix SRMs certified for priority pollutants include gases, atmospheric dust, water, sediments, biological materials, and fuels. In addition, calibrator solutions of organic priority pollutants, such as halocarbons, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, are available for determining instrumental response factors, and adding accurate amounts of these compounds to samples. 18 references, 2 tables.« less
