The study of automotive vehicle pollution in a metropolitan area requires accurate reporting of emissions. This depends on efficient monitoring of traffic flow, and knowing the location parameters critical to the emission process, and adequate knowledge of vehicular emissions under a range of operating conditions. This report describes the methodology developed to allow the estimation of emissions from line and area sources for any specified hour of the day and any specified day of the week. It used a local study by the Federal Highway Administration which characterizes vehicle operation in the St. Louis regional highway network. This is combined with the EPA's model emission calculational procedure to compute emissions.
