The objectives of this pilot study were to develop a preliminary evaluation of air pollution in Jacksonville and to determine whether fluoride and sulfur dioxide concentrations were sufficient to cause damage to vegetation that had occurred in the area. The study consisted of an emission inventory, a meteorological investigation, an intensive short-term study of downtown Jacksonville, and an industrial area study. Pollutants sampled for included sulfur dioxide, oxidants, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, fluorides, and suspended particulates. During the study fluoride concentrations were high enough in certain parts of the city to cause damage to sensitive plants; sulfur dioxide and oxidants were also present at significant levels. Results of the study also indicated that photochemical smog is produced over Jacksonville, that pollutants from Jacksonville are transported across the St. John's River, and finally, that several pollutants constitute a potential problem in the city and should be evaluated further.
