Summary The availability of high time-resolution ( 1 s full spectrum scan) particle sizers permitted atmospheric researchers to scrutinize the characteristics of ultrafine particles in rapidly varying ( perhaps, random) high concentration environments such as roadside, on-road, and tunnels. These data also revealed possible artifacts associated with the slower (similar to 30 s or more) scanning sizers when used in this kind of environment. This study discusses sampling rate artifact problems based on simulations using 1 s Engine Exhaust Particle Sizer data taken on a mobile platform.
