Results of an experimental determination of the precision and the accuracy of a ..beta..-ray attenuation method for measurement of aerosol mass are presented. The instrumental precision for a short-term experiment was 25 ..mu..g for a 6.5-cm/sup 2/ deposit collected on approximately 1 mg/cm/sup 2/ Teflon filters; for a longer-term experiment the precision was 27 ..mu..g. The precision of the gravimetric determinations of aerosol deposits was 22 ..mu..g for Teflon filters weighed to 1 ..mu..g… CONTINUE READING
