ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION BY LEAD AND OTHER HEAVY METALS. VOLUME 5. SYNTHESIS AND MODELING

This volume describes the development and application of methods for evaluating the present and future hazards arising from the use of lead additives in gasoline. The team's program comprised three separate efforts corresponding to the chapters in this volume. Chapter 2 discusses the development and application of physical and biological systems models which (1) translate motor vehicle traffic volumes into ambient concentrations of lead on roadside plants and in roadside soils and (2) translate ambient soil lead concentrations into their effects on plants. Chapter 3 describes the development and application of an interdisciplinary framework for assessing the costs and benefits associated with various alternatives for the future use of lead in gasoline. Chapter 4 discusses the development and application of econometric methods for simulating economic relationships which influence the level of motor-vehicle lead emissions.
