Air Pollution in the San Francisco Bay Area. Final Report of the Stanford Workshop on Air Pollution.
Groth, Ned; And Others
Presented in this compendium is the final report of the Stanford Workshop on Air Pollution, one segment of the SWOPSI Program (Stanford Workshops on Political and Social Issues). The workshop's goals were to apply the techniques of a scientific research team to Bay Area air pollution problems; to study all aspects of air pollution in detail; to analyze and digest the information gathered, suggesting possible solutions to problems; and to make the findings available to the community in such a way that appropriate actions might be generated. To this end, the information contained in this record attests to these activities. Findings, judgements, opinions, attitudes, photographic and statistical data, and conclusions are stated for the three areas of research: (1) industry, especially industry with large-scale pollution problems; (2) the Bay Area Air Pollutio n Control District (BAAPCD); and (3) the public, both the man-on-the-street level and the level of organized clean air interest groups. Overall, the report is designed to provide the average non-technical reader with detailed factual information about air pollution problems, the nature of possible solutions, and the political process by which solutions are implemented.
