Total sulfur and oxides of nitrogen measurements, gathered along two long-distance routes across the United States, are presented. Supportive information describing the instrumentation, procedures, moving laboratory, and regional meteorological conditions are provided. Over 300,000 measurements were made. Points consisting of ten-measurement averages have been plotted; they are also presented in a graphic analysis. This analysis consists of frequency distribution plots of segments of the trip, for example, through rural areas and crossing urban developments. These plots provide a means of classification of the degree of pollution present and monitored with this moving laboratory technique. The data were gathered from Denver, Colorado, to Raleigh, North Carolina, in August 1976, and from Los Angeles, California, to Raleigh, North Carolina, in November 1976. In November the laboratory stopped at six rural locations to record time-averaged data, which are also presented.
