SPECIATE Version 3.2
Return to SPECIATE 4.2
SPECIATE 4.0 was released January 17, 2007. It superscedes all previous versions of the software. Version 3.2 will remain on the EPA website for your convenience.
November 2002: SPECIATE is EPA's repository of Total Organic Compound (TOC) and
Particulate Matter (PM) speciated profiles for a variety of sources
for use in source apportionment studies. This release of SPECIATE
no longer contains profiles assigned to SCC's. Instead, searching
for profiles by keyword has been improved and of course the user
can still browse through the profiles. Some additional improvements
have been made to the interface, and some minor bugs associated
with the export feature have been fixed. No new profiles have been
added to SPECIATE since the previous release in October, 1999.
An expert panel of potential SPECIATE users and data suppliers was
convened at the October 2002 American Association for Aerosol Research
(AAAR) Conference in Charlotte, NC to re-evaluate speciation needs.
The minutes and recommendations from the meeting and a bibliography
of potential journal articles containing newer profile data are
in a table below.
