References: Consolidated List for Speciation Profiles

This page last reviewed December 14, 2012


This page lists references used for the California Air Resources Board speciation profiles.

Most of the references are accessed with the table, below.  However, a summary page of references for consumer products, aerosol coatings, and architectural coatings, can be accessed by clicking HERE.

The RefNum column entries in the table, below, contain links (click on "RefNum" entry) to additional documentation in separate Microsoft Word documents.   These same reference links can be found associated with individual speciation profiles using the INTERACTIVE OPTION web pages.
