This document is one volume of a sixteen-volume report presenting an overall assessment of the particulate problem, which was conducted by GCA/Technology Division for EPA. This particular document is one of fourteen single-area volumes that provide working summaries of data gathered in the fourteen urban areas studied. These city reports primarily provide documentation and background information for Volume I of the study - National Assessment of the Particulate Problem - Final Report (PB-263 665). Volume I should be considered the primary output of the report. Oklahoma City is an institutional, light-industrial city located in slightly rolling hills in the center of Oklahoma. The major fuel is natural gas, and the biggest industrial categories are electric equipment manufacture and food and agriculture products. Climatology is that of the Great Plains, with hot summers and moderate winters, consistently high wind speeds, and relatively light precipitation.
