Air samples were captured in SUMMA polished stainless steel canisters and returned to the laboratory for analysis of trace level volatile organic compounds by gas chromatography - mass spectrometry. Sampling was performed over 2-hour periods at various distances from heavily traveled highways in three cooperative studies between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. as a part of the AutoEx series of experiments. The paper discusses the canister work performed in two of these studies, AutoEx-2 near Leningrad, U.S.S.R. and AutoEx-3 near Vilnius, Lithuania, U.S.S.R. Data are presented from these experiments and the sampling and analytical methodology is discussed. AutoEx results are compared to analogous studies performed in the U.S.
