The initial proposal will be made in the Staff Paper that were made public in late 2003. The final standards are expected to be promulgated in 2005. 1 Fine particles The development of various “continuous” mass monitor has taken place. These systems are actually semicontinuous since there are integration periods necessary to provide a measurement with an acceptable level of measurement uncertainty. The question for these monitoring systems then relates to the appropriate quantity to be measured.

EPA has initiated the deployment of a network of samplers to collect samples for chemical analyses. There will be a need to identify the particle sources, and the compositional data from this network are expected to provide data to the state and local air quality agencies to permit them to develop better air quality management plans (state implementation plans (SIPs)). 3 Map of the United States showing the planned deployment of the national speciation network including additional IMPROVE sites.

Along the direction of 160°, there is a large coal-fired power plant that is likely the source of the observed selenium. Similar results have been found for this system at the Pittsburgh Supersite, where even higher short-term selenium concentrations have been observed and attributed to a specific source.
