EPA's Clean Air Act Air Toxics Database is a four-volume series of databases that focuses on 189 toxic airborne substances regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a result of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. Each database features an automatic installation program, advanced menu-driven search capabilities, and an automatic printing feature that can output data to comprehensive hard-copy reports or electronic files, which can then be easily imported into popular word processing software packages. Information provided in EPA's Clean Air Act Air Toxics Database has been drawn from EPA reports, ACS-sponsored publications, the National Toxicology Program's Chemical Database, and other authoritative sources of technical information. The four volume set represents the most complete source for frequently needed information for air toxics sampling and analysis, pollution abatement, regulatory decisions, and occupational health and safety support required for complying with the Clean Air Act. Volume 1 - Air Toxics Sampling and Analysis Methods Database summarizes over 50 sampling and analytical methods. For each method, the database presents the scope and application of each method, a brief summary including detection limits and QA/QC requirements, and equipment needed (e.g., instrumentation, chromatographic columns, dispersive optics). The source of each method is referenced. In addition, the accompanying manual includes a summary of problems unique to air sampling; considerations important for collecting representative samples; a discussion on selecting sampling devices for volatile, semi-volatile, and nonvolatile compounds; and a brief discourse on the influence of meteorology and topography in collecting air samples.
