    Several air quality microsensors were tested against reference methods. • Significant differences in the results depending on the platform and on the sensors. • Promising results were observed for O3, CO and NO2 sensors. • The sensors can improve spatiotemporal resolution of data to complement existing air quality monitoring by: General Method Issues For NAAQS monitoring, ambient methods must be EPA approved. Options include: Federal Reference Method(s) that are spelled out in an appendix to 40 CFR Part 50 Federal Equivalent Methods that are approved according to the requirements of 40 CFR Part 53 Approved Regional Method (specific to PM2 5 as outlined in 40 CFR Part 58).

    This test, Reference Method 8, is the subject of the present study. It was conducted in the Quality Assurance Division of the Environmental Monitoring Systems Laboratory, which is responsible for evaluating and standardizing EPA test methods. Since promulga- tion of Reference Method 8, the need for a number of changes has become apparent.

    SECTION 1 INTRODUCTION The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Atmospheric Research and Exposure Assessment Laboratory (AREAL) at Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, established an audit program in to evaluate the performance of companies that conduct compliance testing using EPA reference methods.   Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; n-3), is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid (n-3 LCPUFA) and is an integral part of neural membrane phospholipids and as such impacts brain structure and function. Early in life DHA is rapidly accumulated by neural tissue Cited by:

EPA operates a nationwide air monitoring network to measure six primary air pollutants: carbon monoxide, lead, sulfur dioxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and particulate matter (PM 10 and PM ) as part of its mission to protect human health and the environment.

To support monitoring efforts, EPA scientists develop and evaluate methods for accurately and reliably measuring these pollutants in. Program evaluations are individual systematic studies conducted to assess how well a program is working and why.

EPA has used program evaluation to: Support new and innovative approaches and emerging practices. Identify opportunities to improve efficiency and effectiness. Continuously improve existing programs.
