URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING AND AIR QUALITY
This report discusses four main areas of interest concerning air pollution: legislation, information, standards, and analysis techniques. It briefly discusses the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1970 and summarizes general information on the pollutants: carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, lead, particulates, and photochemical oxidants which result from highway vehicles. A discussion of the relationship between the vehicle emission standards and national ambient air quality standards is included with comments on how transportation planning is involved in meeting the air quality standards. Various techniques for analyzing the effects of highway travel on air quality including emission and diffusion models are presented.
