Ambient air samples were collected in Houston downtown and industrial areas to determine hydrocarbon composition and concentrations. Twenty-one samples were collected on three days of sampling: September 1, 1973, and January 30 and April 2, 1974. The results of the detailed hydrocarbon analyses of these samples are presented and suggest that both vehicular and industrial sources of hydrocarbons are important. Some of these samples were collected during periods of extremely stagnated meteorological conditions. It was observed that although the total nonmethane hydrocarbons were high, they did not exceed 10 ppmC. Measurements of nitrogen oxides were made for some of these samples. These samples suggested that the NMHC/NOx ratio in the Houston area was not atypical, usually ranging from 10/1 to 20/1.
