INTERCOMPARISON TEST ON VARIOUS AEROSOL MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES
The results of a comparison test of various sodium aerosol measurement techniques applied in different laboratories in the European Community are reported. Six expert groups of five Member States participated in the exercise. The experiments were carried out, simultaneously with all instruments to be compared, in the FAUNA facility (KfK + Karlsruhe) which provided a continuous aerosol source of variable concentration. Twelve aerosol measurement instruments were compared, of which ten were based on the principle of particle inertia (impactors, centrifuges, inertial spectrometer, sedimentation battery), two provided data from aerosol photographs. The comparison was based on particle size distribution, additionally the mass concentration was measured. Besides a detailed analysis of the results, a description of the FAUNA facility and the organisation of the experiments is given.
