Although Snook reported no averaging times for exposures, one can estimate that these times ranged from 3 to 18 min from the data given on the snowmobiler’s travel distance and vehicle speed. In general, the centerline CO concentrations decreased with increasing distance between snowmobiles and increased with greater speeds, but only for distances greater than 25 ft. between snowmobiles. At 15 ft. 5 ppm. 0 ppm. 5 ppm. At the time of Snook’s study, snowmobile tourism was a booming business across the nation and in several national parks.

28 The San Jose study confirmed the hypothesis that FSM stations did not represent the CO exposures of a person walking in outdoor settings of a major city. Since the San Jose study measured the CO exposure of only one person, other studies tested the hypothesis for larger groups of people. Some of these studies focused on commuters, because CO is a signature air pollutant of motor vehicle tailpipe emissions. For example, Cortese and Spengler29 recruited 66 nonsmoking volunteers who lived in different parts of the metropolitan area of Boston, Massachusetts.
