Title: Automated fine-particle nitrate and PM 2.5 from measurements for method evaluation and secondary aerosol characterization during SCOS '97. Final report[Southern California Oxidant Study]

Abstract

The concentration of airborne fine particle nitrate was measured with 10-min time resolution over a six-week period from August 16, 1997 until October 1, 1997. Measurements were made using a new, automated method developed by Aerosol Dynamics Inc. With this technique, particles are collected by a humidified impaction process and analyzed in-place by flash vaporization. Deposited nitrate mass is quantitated by the chemiluminescent detection of the evolved nitrogen oxides. For the period until September 3 the automated nitrate system was deployed in Riverside, CA alongside several other particle measurement techniques. From September 3 through October 1, 1997, the system was deployed in Mira Loma, CA, located to the west of Riverside.
