Criteria are developed by which the validity of pollution predictions and measurements in the airport environs can be judged. The criteria are applied to three technologies: (1) predictive mathematical models, (2) measurements by point samplers, and (3) measurements by remote monitors. For mathematical models the criterion is the agreement between predicted and measured pollution levels. Various mathematical models are described, analyzed and ranked by weighted attributes as screening models and as validation models. For point samplers, the criteria have been developed based on EPA-approved measurement principles and procedures for testing performance characteristics and for determining a consistent relationship to reference methods. Remote monitors belong to an evolving technology that has not yet been approved as to measurement principles. Thus criteria are developed to select certain remote sensing systems as potential candidates for air enforcement monitors. Data validation procedures are developed for the selected remote monitors.
