In arranging for this Symposium at the decision of Air caliber, we tried to give even more than analytical chemi­ cal details. We learned absolutely that a lot of the viewers will be drawn to that form of details, yet we additionally believed strongly that those analytical chemists wish and want to grasp the destiny and importance in their items, i.e., their info. Accord­ ingly, the individuals have been drawn from a number of "disciplines" -­ directors, clinical researchers, engineers, structures analysts, and instrumental and chemical analysts. there has been a corresponding range of material in the formal displays. The Symposium used to be performed in 3 half-day classes. the 1st of those addressed the final topic of what's being performed now in regards to the selection of air caliber. This basic sub­ ject touched upon current info garage and dealing with actions, surveillance networks, correlative paintings with health and wellbeing results, and efforts to mix (or index) a number of measured parameters right into a unmarried comprehensible worth. the second one consultation handled fresh advancements within the analytical technique of air caliber. Resea~ch and evaluate papers have been provided. the ultimate consultation addressed extra avant garde themes, similar to the decision of odors, using electron spectroscopy for air caliber reports, and the real intersociety attempt geared toward standardizing analytical methods within the air caliber region. The reaction to this symposium was once pleasant. It reinforced our trust that topical symposia can pass a ways to enhance communique among people who find themselves attacking a standard challenge, yet from assorted directions.

The overseas Astronomical Union Colloquium on Stellar Rotation used to be held on the Ohio kingdom college in Columbus, Ohio, U. S. A. from September eighth via eleven th, 1969. Forty-four scientists from Argentina, Belgium, Canada, England, Finland, East and West Germany, Italy, Israel, Japan, The Netherlands, and the USA attended and took part within the Colloquium.

Sample text

To relate environmental variations to the acute response health indicators, we need the data from continuous monitors providing real time pollutant concentrations. A prototype continuous monitoring station having automatic acquisition with magnetic tape storage and "on-call" telemetry output of data is now under development and will be established in the entire CHESS-CHAMP system in the near future. We feel that the telemetry system is necessary on an "on-call" basis to enable routine checks on instrument performance, to process data on a daily schedule, and to provide access to current data during air pollution episodes.

Igain, the answers to this question should be clear from the agency's list of data needs. If it is necessary to set priorities because of limitations of resources, the following ordering of priorities should be employed: • Those pollutants which represent a problem in the agency's jurisdiction. This can be determined from known or suspected emissions in the agency's jurisdiction or from prior monitoring efforts. • Pollutants for which legal standards have been set. • Pollutants expected to become a hazard to the public health and welfare at some time in the near future.

Finally, the Air Pollution Control Ottice (APCO) ot the Environmental Protection Agency recommerds that 24-hour averages should be taken over the period midnight to midnight to allow comparison with stardard meteorological summaries. The allowable in reporting data to agency headquarters ot the data. Legal uses usually have the longest allowable delay, because there is rarely a deadline on data presentation. Allowable delay in receipt ot data for public information uses is usually aroum 12 hours to one day.
