The report is based on the numerous technical and scientific papers resulting from a major study of air pollution and effects made in Nashville, Tennessee, by the Public Health Service, Vanderbilt University, and state and local agencies during 1958-59. These papers have been supplemented by field investigations to complete the background information needed for preparation of an air resource management program plan. The report summarizes a number of the technical and scientific papers and uses all of them to develop new concepts as well as unify new and old approaches to air pollution control in preparation of the air resource management program plan. Air quality goals and the means to reach those goals are suggested. Supporting data are provided and methodology adapted for relating air quality goals to control of emissions. Methods for predicting air pollutant levels by use of mathematical models are presented. Public opinion survey results and their implications for the air resource management program are given. The report has specific use for development of an air resource management program in Nashville and general use for program development and reference in many other places. (Author)
