The report discusses a research program whose goal is to formulate a methodology to predict air pollutant emissions resulting from the construction and operation of two types of major land use projects, large residential projects and large concentrations of employment. Emissions are quantified from the major project, from land use induced by the major project, from secondary activity occurring off-site (i.e., generation of electricity by utilities), and from motor vehicle traffic associated with both the major project and its induced land uses. This volume provides a summary of the first two volumes, viz. the specification and causal analysis of the land use model and the development of the land use based emission factors. It also discusses the development of the predictive equations in the land use model and the development of the traffic model.
