Abstract: Equipment used to monitor pollution and meteorological conditions concurrently with the observation of change in health of normally healthy individuals is evaluated. Shortcomings and useful features of the original equipment, modifications and changes required, and the problems of operation and maintenance are presented. Unique features of the program including vertical profile monitoring on a continuous sequential cycle, satellite stations, and supplementary wet method sampling and analysis are demonstrated. Methodology of multidiscipline studies relating pollution levels, meteorology, and medical findings by means of computer programs are examined with primary emphasis on interrelations of the first two. Three episodes in New York City are investigated.
