Abstract: The thirteen journal articles in this issue deal with air quality indicators due, in part, to population growth, cross-border traffic, and economic expansion since ratification of NAFTA; regions covered span from Tijuana, Baja California to Brownsville, Texas. This introduction details environmental and NAFTA issues for the region during the 1990's and provides a quantitative technique on how air pollution trends can be analyzed with economic information, such as the increase in truck/car-crossing data; it also provides figures for border industries known as maquiladoras during this period. The Introduction also summarizes the special issue papers and how they are inter-related.

The information in this document has been funded wholly or in part by the United States Environmental Protection Agency under Contract 68-D5-0049 to ManTech Environmental Technology, Inc. It has been subjected to agency review and approved for publication. Mention of trade names or commercial products does not constitute endorsement of recommendation for use.
