An Atmospheric Analysis Laboratory will be established at the University of Arizona to aid the fight against air pollution. The laboratory and a $545,179 supporting grant from the Arizona Mining Association were approved recently by the Arizona Board of Regents. The mining industry grant will make it possible for Arizona to become one of the first states to have a comprehensive air monitoring and analysis program.
Noting that air pollution concerns every person in Arizona, University President Richard A. Harvill said the laboratory would provide an effective method to study the problem. ‘An analysis of the situation will be made by competent, unbiased people,’ he said.
