A systems framework for investigating the relationship of urban transportation and land use to air quality is set forth in this paper. The nature and interrelationships of the major components of the flow of airborne residuals are outlined, and the residuals management process is examined in terms of its components and their attributes. Part II consists of the analysis of the problem of mobile source emissions in the context of the general framework suggested in Part I. Possibilities for modeling the emissions-transportation system-land use interface are briefly explored and some alternative solutions are suggested.
