Abstract : The study provides an evaluation of the accuracy, precision, availability, and simplicity of operation of selected SO2, NO2, and O3 ambient air monitors. A decision weighting model is used to evaluate the characteristics of simplicity of operation; maintainability, data reduction, and calibration. Interference data are also presented for selected instruments. (Author)
