The document focuses on carbon monoxide (CO) as it is found in the ambient air; therefore, literature on extremely high levels of CO has not been extensively cited. The occurrence, properties, and fate of atmospheric CO and principles of formation and control are reviewed followed by a discussion of estimation of CO emissions and measurement of atmospheric CO. The effects of CO are considered in relation to (1) vegetation, (2) toxicological studies on animals and man, and (3) epidemiological studies. The scientific literature has been generally reviewed through March 1969, with additional sources from reports as recent as January 1970. The literature has been reviewed thoroughly for information related to the development of criteria; and the document not only summarizes the current scientific knowledge of CO air pollution, but also attempts to point up the major deficiencies in that knowledge and the presently recognized needs for further research.
