The report is a review and evaluation of the current knowledge of manganese in the environment as related to possible deleterious effects on human health and welfare. Sources, distribution, measurement, and control technology are also considered. Manganese is associated with small particles in the air. Concentrations measured in ambient air averaged 0.1 microgram/cu m (annual) with a maximum of 8.3 microgram/cu m (annual) near a large source. In Norway, a form of pneumonia was attributed to airborne manganese in a community where concentrations were measured at 46 microgram/cu m. Manganese poisoning characterized by progressive central nervous system deterioration has occurred under occupational exposure but apparently not from atmospheric exposure.
