Through a series of workshops on cold climate environmental research priorities, conducted in 1982 by Battelle for the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, air pollution was identified as the topic of highest priority. The current state of knowledge on air pollution in cold climates was considered to be widely scattered in the published and 'gray' scientific literature. One of the high priority projects of air pollution research was therefore identified to be the compilation of a bibliography and synthesis of what is known and what is not known about air pollution in the cold regions. This document is the result of that recommendation. The bibliography on air pollution compiled for these 'cold regions' includes papers on the sources, species, concentrations, pathways, and effects of various kinds of air pollution, including phenomena such as ice fog, and arctic haze which are peculiar to the region. Most of the listed references apply to Alaska; Fairbanks in particular, is strongly represented in the literature on ice fog, carbon monoxide, automobile emissions, and other topics. The references on arctic haze, a phenomenon which pervades the entire Arctic Basin, are fairly extensive as are references from northern Europe on haze, acid rain, and other pollution problems.
