Comparison of 14 ACSMs and co-located real-time aerosol instruments at the SIRTA French Atmospheric Supersite in the region of Paris (France)

Abstract : As part of the EU-FP7 ACTRIS program (Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research InfraStructure Network), European monitoring stations have been equipped with innovative real-time measuring techniques. Among those, the ACSM (Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor; Aerodyne Res. Inc., Ng et al., 2011) is a powerful technique for the determination of the chemical mass composition of non-refractory submicron particles (NR-PM1) and the identification of PM emission sources. Given its relatively recent development, the firstever ACSM intercomparison exercise was conducted, consisting of 14 ACSMs (including 1 ToF-ACSM) conducted sampling together from 15 Nov. to 2 Dec. 2013 at the French SIRTA atmospheric supersite located in the region of Paris. This exercise allowed assessment of ACSM performance and comparability in ambient conditions characterized by variable contributions of different emission sources such as road traffic and biomass burning.
