A report is presented of the results of an emission inventory of air pollutant sources in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Metropolitan Area. A modified version of the rapid survey technique was used. The objectives of the study were to determine the total quantities of the various air pollutants emitted and to estimate their seasonal and geographical variation. To accomplish this task, the study area was divided into a grid coordinate system, and the emission quantities were reported in terms of tons of pollutant per grid for a summer, winter, and average day. The pollutants considered were sulfur oxides, particulates, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons. All major source categories except solvent evaporation were included in the survey.
