The concentration and isotopic composition of carbon monoxide were determined in air samples taken in the St. Louis, Missouri area. This information is used to follow the plume for a major city like St. Louis. Urban air could be detected as far as 47 miles downwind of the city. The effect of local emissions in rural areas was found to be minimal. Diurnal studies demonstrated an inverse relationship between carbon monoxide concentration and oxygen and carbon isotopic ratios during the night. A parallel relation was found during the daylight hours.
