A summary is presented of the emission inventory of the Houston-Galveston Metropolitan Area. The report provides estimates of total emissions of oxides of sulfur, oxides of nitrogen, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter. The emissions of these pollutants are delineated with respect to source type, season of the year, and geographical distribution within the area. The study area was set up consisting of eight counties surrounding the cities of Houston and Galveston. The study area is divided into grid zones that serve as the basis for locating sources and reporting their emissions. The sources divided include industries, power plants, central refuse burning facilities, home heating, and on-site refuse burning. The emissions are expressed in terms of tons of pollutants for an average annual, summer, and winter day. (Author)
