The Oxides of Nitrogen in Air Pollution.
California State Air Resources Board, Sacramento.
Research on the health effects of oxides of nitrogen and on the role of oxides of nitrogen in producing photochemical smog effects is presented in this report. Prepared by the California State Department of Public Health at the request of the State Legislature, it gives a comprehensive review of available information, as well as the need for air quality and motor vehicle emission standards for oxides of nitrogen. Chapters are titled: The Oxides of Nitrogen and Their Formation, Oxides of Nitrogen from Motor Vehicles, Oxides of Nitrogen from Stationary Sources, Increases in Oxides of Nitrogen Emissions, Oxides of Nitrogen in the Atmosphere, Color Effects of Nitrogen Dioxide in the Atmosphere, Phytotoxicity of Nitrogen Dioxide, Photochemical Effects of Nitrogen Oxides, and Biologic Effects of Nitrogen Dioxide. Summary statements indicate that oxides of nitrogen play an important role in California's air pollution problems. Also, since increases in oxides of nitrogen emissions and nitrogen dioxide concentrations are expected, it is important to consider the direct effects of nitrogen dioxide on health, vegetation, and color of the atmosphere, as well as the photochemical smog effects. Numerous charts, diagrams, and figures are used to support the data. (BL)
