Ambient Air Monitoring at the Naval/Marine Reserve Center
UltraSystems conducted ambient air monitoring for respirable particulate matter (PM10), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), reactive organic gases (ROG), and sulfur dioxide (SO2) at the Naval/Marine Reserve Center. Speciated analyses of two samples of ROG and one sample of PM10 collected by our environmental field team were performed by a certified laboratory. The ROG analysis was conducted utilizing EPA Method TO-14 (collection in evacuated canisters followed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry) to quantify the concentrations of 37 gaseous components. The PM10 analysis yielded the concentrations of 17 metals. Additional analysis encompassed carbon content of the seven particulate sample filters collected during the month of October testing at the Naval/Marine Reserve Center.
