In the study a methodology is presented for surveying regional air pollution and for forecasting emissions. In the Federal Republic of Germany, the trend of certain contaminants from households and small users, as well as from road traffic needed to be computed for the years 1960-1980 at 5-year intervals. Accordingly the Republic was divided into 70 rectangular surface elements about 55 x 70 km and emissions were determined for each. With this resolution the methodology is applied for two discussed cases.
