Status Report [Air Pollution Research Advisory Committee of the Coordinating Research Council].
Coordinating Research Council, New York, NY. Air Pollution Research Advisory Committee.
Research projects sponsored by the Coordinating Research Council, Air Pollution Research Advisory Committee, and dealing with vehicle emissions and their wide ranging effects on the environment are compiled in this status report. Spanning the range of problems associated with reducing emissions, they are divided into three main areas of research: (1) engineering projects that explore the interaction between the petroleum products and the automotive equipment in which they are used, (2) atmospheric projects that investigate pollutant behavior in the atmosphere, and (3) medical projects that study the effects of emissions on health. As a result of these projects, increased data are available which will be useful in the planning and development of effective emission control technology and provide assistance to government agencies in the promulgation of realistic air quality criteria and emission control requirements. Presented in the review are both a resume and a detailed account of 41 projects currently underway, enumerating project name and number, objectives, and current status. In addition, the Coordinating Research Council and its air pollution research program are described, together with membership lists, a progress chart of projects for 1971, and an anticipated schedule of progress during 1972.
