The report presents estimates of the impact projected diesel-powered vehicle sales will have on the levels of total suspended particulates (TSP) and benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) to which the population is exposed. A detailed particulate emission inventory is developed for a representative test city (Kansas City, MO) for a base year (1974). Emissions and population exposure to TSP & BaP are projected for 1981, 1983, 1985, and 1990. Emissions from all sources except diesel are assumed to remain constant in order that the full impact of diesels can be seen and because insufficient time was available to vary the model. An abbreviated discussion of possible health effects attributable to organic emissions from diesel powered vehicles is included.
