Abstract

Decreasing trends of elemental carbon (EC) have been reported at US Interagency Monitoring of PROtected Visual Environments (IMPROVE) network from 1990 to 2004, consistent with the phase-in of cleaner engines, residential biomass burning technologies, and prescribed burning practices. EC trends for the past decade are examined due to an upgrade of IMPROVE carbon instruments and the thermal/optical analysis protocol since 2005. Filter reflectance (tau(R)) values measured as part of the carbon analysis were retrieved from archived data and compared with EC for 65 sites with more complete records within 2000-2009. EC-tau(R) relationships suggest minor changes of EC quantified by the original and upgraded instruments for most IMPROVE samples. EC and tau(R) show universal decreasing trends across the US. The EC and tau(R) trends are correlated, with national average downward rates (relative to the 2000-2004 baseline medians) of 4.5% yr(-1) for EC and 4.1% yr(-1) for tau(R). The consistency between independent EC and tau(R) measurements adds to the weight of evidence that EC reductions are real rather than an artifact of changes to the measurement process.
