In order to evaluate or rank land use plans in terms of air quality, it is necessary for planners to be able to project emission density (mass of pollutant per unit of land for any specified time period) using only planning variables, because detailed source characteristics are not available at the time alternative plans are being developed and evaluated. The objective of this study is to analyze the utility of various land use parameters in describing the air quality impacts of land use plans. Such parameters include land use by zoning class and 2-digit SIC code, employment dwelling units, and square footage of floor space.
