Abstract: An air pollution sampling methodology, involving varying point locations determined to be representative of equal annular volumes, is developed for the case of uniform flow profiles. Results from the proposed method are compared to results from equal area methodologies. It is concluded that the equal area methodology is most representative under very high turbulent conditions and least representative as the transition region is approached.
