NCore

NCore is a multi-pollutant network that integrates several advanced measurement systems for particles, pollutant gases and meteorology. NCore parameters are outlined below.

Parameter Comments
PM2.5 speciation Organic and elemental carbon, major ions and trace metals (24 hour average; every 3rd day); IMPROVE or CSN
PM2.5 FRM mass 24 hr. average at least every 3rd day
continuous PM2.5 mass 1 hour reporting interval; FEM or pre-FEM monitors
PM(10-2.5) mass Filter-based or continuous
ozone (O3) all gases through continuous monitors
carbon monoxide (CO) capable of trace levels (low ppm and below) where needed
sulfur dioxide (SO2) capable of trace levels (low ppb and below) where needed
nitrogen oxide (NO) capable of trace levels (low ppb and below) where needed
total reactive nitrogen (NOy) capable of trace levels (low ppb and below) where needed
surface meteorology wind speed and direction (reported as “Resultant”), temperature, RH
