This report describes the results of a joint traffic and carbon monoxide monitoring study conducted for 2 weeks at a regional shopping center, prior to Christmas 1973, and the application of observed data towards the validation of an early version of a proposed procedure to assess the air quality impact of indirect sources. Automatic traffic recorders were installed at all entrances and exits, and five carbon monoxide monitors were set up within the parking lot and at the main gate. Vehicle running time studies and wind speed and direction measurements were also undertaken at the site. Peak hour calculated concentrations were obtained. The results are discussed.
