Air pollution generated by complex sources such as automobile parking lots can be reduced to a minimum if the lots are designed and constructed with adequate care and understanding of several factors. In this study, carbon monoxide concentrations in batch samples of ambient atmosphere from different parking lots were determined to ascertain the extent of such existing air pollution and its distribution pattern. Hourly variations in the levels of the pollutant, auto traffic, and wind were correlated for several parking lots near the central business district and one in a suburban setting. Regression analysis was used in an attempt to obtain a mathematical model for estimating carbon monoxide concentrations in the ambient atmosphere of an automobile parking lot.
