However, they usually require more frequent operating checks and adjustments, and the measurement precision is only marginally below typical background levels. 3 Manual Particulate Methods Manual filter-based particulate collection methods give time-averaged results of PM, typically over 24 h, and usually require manual changes of the sampling filters in between each sample; however, a number of semiautomated systems are also available. The precision of most manual particulate methods is about 10–20% of typical background levels.
