Matrix (atmospheric compartment sampled)

Description

The matrix identifies the atmospheric compartment sampled by the reported measurement. For measurements of PM, the allowed values include:

pm1: Measurements refer to a chemical or physical property of the total aerosol particle phase in the size fraction less than 1 micrometer median aerodynamic diameter. 

pm25: Measurements refer to a chemical or physical property of the total aerosol particle phase in the size fraction less than 2.5 micrometer median aerodynamic diameter. 

pm10: Measurements refer to a chemical or physical property of the total aerosol particle phase in the size fraction less than 10 micrometer median aerodynamic diameter.

The size cuts are commonly achieved by an impactor or cyclone in the inlet system. The matrix has to correspond to the PM fraction reported in the file.

 

Syntax:

Matrix:                       <matrix identifier>

Example:

Matrix:                       pm10
