NARSTO EPA_SS_FRESNO PM2.5 Organic and Elemental Carbon DataEntry ID: NARSTO_EPA_SS_FRESNO_PM25_OC_EC
Abstract: This data set contains measurements taken from an continuous carbon monitor,
Model R&P5400C operated from 1/13/00 to 4/28/03, and a Sunset Carbon Analyzer
operated from 8/1/03 to present, at the Fresno supersite. The sample
collection time is 1 hour; the sample analysis time is one hour. Data are
output once an hour, two hours after the start of sample collection.
The Fresno Supersite is one ... of several Supersites that was established
in urbanareas within the United States by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) to better understand the measurement, sources,
and health effects of suspended particulate matter (PM). The site is
located at 3425 First St., approximately 1 km north of the downtown
commercial district. First Street is a four-lane artery with moderate
traffic levels. Commercial establishments, office buildings, churches,
and schools are located north and south of the monitor.
Medium-density single-family homes and some apartments are located in
the blocks to the east and west of First Street. The Fresno Supersite
began operation in May of 1999 and continues today.
