A Critical Review of Air Pollution Index Systems in the United States and Canada
Ott, Wayne R.; Thom, Gary C.
Journal of the Air Pollution Control Association, 26, 5, 460-470, May 76

This lack of uniformity creates confusion, suggests questionable technical validity, and discourages a national picture. The authors recombined indices currently in use to develop a Standardized Urban Air Quality Index for national use. (MR)
