Managing Carbon Monoxide Pollution in Meteorological and Topographical Problem Areas. The regulation of carbon monoxide has been one of the great success stories in air pollution control. While more than 90 percent of the locations with carbon monoxide monitors were in violation in , today the number of monitors showing violations has fallen to only a few, on a small number of days and mainly in areas with unique meteorological and topographical conditions. The NRC Committee on Carbon Monoxide Episodes in Meteorological and Topographi-cal Problem Areas met in many affected locations to hear from experts on local conditions and national and local controls. The committee’s findings and recom-mendations are described in Managing Carbon Monox-ide in Meteorological and Topographical Problem Areas. EPA/ SELECTING SITES FOR CARBON MONOXIDE MONITORING by F.L.

In a forested area, a clearing would be desir able; if none is available.

Carbon (C) is one of the most important elements in air pollution. All living systems on earth consist of molecular arrangements of the elements: carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and most contain nitrogen. These four so-called biophile elements have an affinity for each other so as to .
