The objective of the Investigation was to determine If air ion concentrations could be used to determine the concentrations of air pollutants. A coaxial-conical, converging channel ion mobility chamber was constructed and a series of extensive measurements were made. A regression analysis was used to determine if the ion concentrations were correlated to the air pollutant concentrations. Some degree of correlation was found for two air pollutants. The potential use of air ion measurements to determine air quality still remains to be proven.
