The correlation between gravimetric and densitometric concentrations of suspended particulates in the atmospheric aerosol has been investigated for sampling durations of 2- and 24-hours. The most common gravimetric monitoring method uses a 24-hour sampling period. The densitometric method has been proposed by others as a method for estimating gravimetric concentration on a bi-hourly basis. Time pattern effects on the correlation between the two methods are evaluated in this paper.
