Aerometric data are reported for various air pollutants measured by the United States Environmental Protection Agency from 1971 through 1975 in four Utah communities. The communities (Kearns, Magna, Ogden, and Salt Lake City) are situated in or near the Great Salt Lake Basin in which a large copper smelter represented the largest point source of sulfur oxide emissions during the study period. Measurements were made of total suspended particulate, nitrate, sulfate, and sulfur dioxide. In addition to describing the spatial, seasonal, and long-term variations in the air quality data, the report includes discussions of related meteorology, quality assurance, and emission data.
