WILLARD MILLER RUBY M. MILLER PENNSYLVANIA STATE UNIVERSITY Page 1 1 Indoor Pollution: A Perspective Problems of indoor air quality began when man first brought fires into a cave, but only in the past several decades has the general public become aware of the health hazards of contaminated air. In the early 1970s, the presence of friable asbestos in the atmospheres of public schools and other buildings created an awareness of atmospheric health problems.

The downward diffusion of ozone may occur through convection, such as along low pressure troughs, during episodes of frontal passage or through jet stream interactions. Ozone reaches its maximum concentration in the atmosphere early in the afternoon, when the peak concentration is about 350 &x109g/m3. Mean hourly ozone concentration may exceed values of 240 &x109g/m3 for ten hours or more. Since the early 1920s, studies have revealed that outdoor ozone is the major source for that found inside buildings.

The total body burden is thus located in the circulatory system, of which the lungs dominate. Standards for Indoor Air Quality Although there has been minimal federal legislation controlling indoor air quality, a number of engineering societies have established guidelines. Because of the recognized importance of ventilation, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has provided a set of indoor ventilation standards (ASHRAE 62-1989). These are now widely accepted.
