Abstract : The ambient air quality at McClellan Air Force Base, Sacramento County, California, was monitored to determine if the exhaust emissions from jet aircraft and associated industrial operations in the area would produce significantly higher pollution levels than those shown by the Sacramento County Air Pollution Division community data over the same period, the applicability of specific equipment and methods that might be used for ambient air quality studies, and the manpower requirements to conduct this type of monitoring program. The results of the study showed the levels of pollutants measured at the McClellan sampling station were lower than the pollutant levels recorded at the Sacramento county sampling stations. Conclusions are presented for the future type of air pollution research and monitoring that Air Force facilities should undertake. (Author)
