Abstract: This proceedings, Transportation Planning and Air Quality, consists of papers presented at the National Conference sponsored by the Urban Transportation Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers held in Santa Barbara, California, July 28-31, 1991. These papers are concerned with the improvement of air quality by controlling mobile sources of pollution. With current statistics showing that most carbon monoxide and about half of the nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons come from mobile sources, new laws, regulations, and procedures have been implemented to address these concerns. The end effect has been that transportation planners and air quality analysts must work together in order to provide mobility while improving air quality. Thus, this proceedings brings together the ideas of individuals from the various professions dealing with transportation and air quality to allow discussion of key issues such as: 1) the Federal Clean Air Act and transportation planning; 2) effectiveness of transportation strategies; 3) transportation and emissions modeling; 4) trends in mobile source emissions modeling; 5) air quality at intersections; and 6) innovative approaches to transportation and emission.
