In the fall of 1975, General Motors conducted an extensive field experiment at the GM proving grounds in Milford, Michigan. The purpose of the experiment was to measure the concentrations and assess characteristics of aerosols, especially sulfates and sulfuric acid, emitted by a fleet of catalyst-equipped cars operated under simulated freeway conditions. In addition, emissions dispersion and meterological parameters were measured; this data served as input for developing a plume dispersion model. At the invitation of General Motors, EPA, along with their contractors and grantees, participated in this experiment. This report consists of several important research papers that discuss and present the results of studies carried out by EPA during the GM experiment.
