An emmission inventory for the Pittsburgh Metropolitan area is presented. Total emissions of sulfur oxides, particulates, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbons were estimated as a function of source type, season, and geographical distribution. The major sources included motor vehicles, industrial processes, steam-electric power plants, domestic heating, commercial and institutional fuel combustion, refuse disposal, incineration, open burning, aircraft, railroads, and vessels. Data on combustion of coal, residual and distillate fuel oils, and natural gas are tabulated.
