Abstract : Gas chromatography has been used extensively over the past 10 years to measure atmospheric concentrations of a variety of air pollutants. However, only recently has the gas chromatograph been thought of as an analytical system which could serve faithfully as a routine air pollution monitor. It has been demonstrated that an automated gas chromatograph could be used to measure ambient as well as source concentrations of carbon monoxide, methane, sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide. The paper presents details of these analytical developments and discuss their role in future monitoring programs. (Author)
