The report summarizes both air toxic data compiled by Dr. Hanwant B. Singh of SRI International and selected trace metal and benzo(a)pyrene data contained on the National Aerometric Data Bank's (NADB) Storage and Retrieval of Aerometric Data (SAROAD). The pollutants, that are summarized, are listed in Tables 1 and 2. Table 1 is a list of 37 priority chemicals under assessment as potential carcinogens (Type A pollutants), while Table 2 lists 50 additional chemicals that are under assessment (Type B pollutants). Of the 37 pollutants listed in Table 1, data were obtained on 24 pollutants. This compares with finding information on only 17 of the 50 additional chemicals. In addition to the above pollutants, arsenic and benzene are summarized in Attachment A. Emphasis has been placed on obtaining long-term averages to match the concern with chronic long-term exposure of human populations to these pollutants. A long-term averaging time may be appropriate for known and suspected carcinogens depending on the compounds ability to induce significant health impacts.
