There is increased interest to improve the quantification of emissions of particulate matter (PM) into the atmosphere than is currently available. Such improved characterization allows better monitoring of emissions to the atmosphere to know when upset conditions occur and to quantify PM mass emissions that are not currentlyavailable. Optical Remote Sensing techniques, including digital still cameras and MicroPulse Light detection and ranging (MPL), will be described to quantify the opacity of plumes generated by stationary sources and PM mass emissions from mobile sources. The scientific bases for these methods and the implementation of these methods during field campaigns will be discussed.
