A summary report is presented of the emission inventory for the Phoenix - Tucson Metropolitan Area, Arizona. The report provides estimates of the present levels of air pollutant emissions and status of their control. The pollutants which include sulfur oxides, particulates, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxides are delineated with respect to source type, season of the year, and geographical distribution within the area. The Study Area, which consists of eight counties located in the southern part of the State of Arizona, is divided into grid zones that serve as the basis for locating sources and reporting their emissions. All sources of emissions were classified into the following categories: transportation, fuel combustion in stationary sources, solid-waste disposal, industrial process losses, organic solvent evaporation, and agricultural operations.
