Measurements were made of the amounts of 24 components in 24-hour samples of atmospheric particulates collected over a 12-month period in the greater Tucson area. Techniques of pattern recognition were used to examine the data base, which also included meteorological information collected daily over the same period of time. Clustering methods grouped similar components together. Principal Component Analysis showed that most of the variance was contained in only a few dimensions.
