Standardisation of a European measurement method for the determination of anions and cations in PM2.5
European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) Technical Committee 264 ‘Air Quality’ has recently produced a standard method for the measurements of anions and cations in PM2.5 within its Working Group 34 in response to the requirements of European Directive 2008/50/EC. It is expected that this method will be used in future by all Member States making measurements of the ionic content of PM2.5. This paper details the results of a ﬁeld measurement campaign and the statistical analysis performed to validate this method, assess its uncertainty and deﬁne its working range to provide clarity and conﬁdence in the underpinning science for future users of the method.
