Abstract：On the basis of analyzing various constraints in designing a regional air quality monitoring network (RAQMN), using synthetic evaluation concentrations based on simulated data from air quality models, a methodological framework for site optimal locating was established. The framework took the maximum approximately degree as an optimization objective, and used the construction cost, terrain condition, administrative division, population distribution and spatial coverage as constrain conditions. The Pearl River Delta (PRD) region was used as a case site to illustrate the framework with three representative scenarios: (1) conventional pollutants (SO2, NO2 and PM10); (2) pollutants with regional characteristics (O3 and PM2.5); (3) combination of (1) and (2) plus others. The proposed approach could be successfully used for optimal locating of RAQMN sites; and the Scenario 3 considering both conventional and regional pollutants could better represent the regional characteristics and more extensively reflect regional air quality.
