The summary contains highlights of the full study which focused on the relationship between land use forms and environmental quality. It investigated the influence of the spatial distribution of land rises on the pollutants generated and the resulting environmental quality. The investigation was assisted by the preparation of a 'sorting table' in which the 'rows' are the various urban forms and land use patterns and the 'columns' are the several classes, types and elements of environmental pollution. A comparative analysis of the materials assembled for the table determined trends across the urban forms and land use types, focusing particularly on the identification of those land use forms that naturally generate the least pollution. Also, parallel investigation of national trends in population distribution and land use was performed, so that some expectations could be developed as to the likely impacts on pollution of current patterns of regional growth and change.
