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