NARSTO EPA_SS_HOUSTON TEXAQS2000 Formaldehyde and Hydrogen Peroxide DataEntry ID: NARSTO_EPA_SS_HT_HCHO_H2O2
Abstract: The NARSTO_EPA_SS_HOUSTON_TEXAQS2000_HCHO_H2O2_DATA data set contains continuous formaldehyde (HCHO) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) measurements collected in August - September 2000 during the Texas Air Quality Study 2000 (TEXAQS2000) at the HRM Site 3 monitoring station. Integrated single point measurements of 3-minute samples were collected every 10 minutes.
The Houston Supersite is one of ... several Supersites that was established in urban areas 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 overall goals were to characterize the composition and identify the sources of particulate matter in Southeastern Texas, to develop and test new methods for characterizing fine particulate matter, and to collect data on the physical and chemical characterization of fine particulate matter that can be used to support exposure and health effects studies.
NARSTO (formerly North American Research Strategy for Tropospheric Ozone) is a public/private partnership, whose membership spans government, the utilities, industry, and academe throughout Mexico, the United States, and Canada. The primary mission is to coordinate and enhance policy-relevant scientific research and assessment of tropospheric pollution behavior; activities provide input for science-based decision-making and determination of workable, efficient, and effective strategies for local and regional air-pollution management. Data products from local, regional, and international monitoring and research programs are available.
