Abstract
The report describes initial results of a program to measure and model the precipitation scavenging of urban pollutants in the St. Louis area. The primary field measurements of the program are of concentrations of trace inorganics in rainwater collected at specific locations in the area. A review of possible field experimental designs in the context of the modeling objectives of this study indicates that the concept of a regional pollution material balance is an appropriate initial approach. The scavenging term in the balance is the scavenging rate, the mass of a given pollutant removed per unit distance along the storm path per unit time. These rates were computed from the concentrations measured during five convective storms in August, 1972. (Modified author abstract)
