This is the U.S. contribution to a report being prepared by Panel 3, Environmental Impact, of The Air Pollution Pilot Study on Control Strategies and Impact Modeling, NATO Committee on the Challenges of Modern Society. It is a representative collection of recent research findings and key data on aerosol impact on visibility and climate in the United States. The report emphasizes sulfate and elemental carbon; minor contributors are mentioned only briefly. Sections on impact of visibility and impact on climate include many illustrations of secular trend data. A brief section on economic effects addresses potential impact, especially in terms of agricultural effects.
