Indoor Air Monitoring Methods

This page last reviewed August 29, 2011

The ARB often receives requests for information on indoor air quality monitoring methods. There are a number of resources available for indoor air quality investigators, but only a few with compiled information on a variety of indoor monitoring methods. Some of those compilations are linked below. The first link is to a 1990 U.S. EPA document, "Compendium of Methods for the Determination of Pollutants in Indoor Air," that covers a wide array of methods. The second link is to a U.S. EPA web page of current ambient air monitoring methods, some of which are updated versions of methods included in the indoor air Compendium. Additional links may be added in the future as other similar information resources become available or made known to us.

The ARB does not recommend any one method over another; the most appropriate method for a given study depends on the specific needs and purpose of the study.
