The Regional Air Pollution Study (RAPS), which encompasses the St. Louis Air Quality Control Region, is the largest and most comprehensive attempt to date to obtain a quantitative understanding of urban air pollution. Its aim is to describe the complex relationships between emissions to the atmosphere, atmospheric dispersions and transformation processes, and ambient concentrations of pollutants. The St. Louis Air Quality Control Region includes the counties of Bond, Clinton, Madison, Monroe, Randolph, St. Clair, and Washington in Illinois and Franklin, Jefferson, St. Charles, St. Louis, and St. Louis City in Missouri. With the initiation of the RAPS, the need to grid the study area was required to present area source emissions on a sub-county basis. Included in the report are computer drawn maps of the whole RAPS area and each county. The maps include county and river outlines and the assigned numbers for each grid square. Also included is a table listing the grid square numbers and their UTM coordinates.
