Abstract: "During the summer of 1994, as part of the Careers in Science and Applied Technology (CAST) program, seven high school students and an elementary school teacher worked together to document the current pollution patterns on the Cathedral of Learning on the University of Pittsburgh campus. This report presents the results of their research in which they used surveying, sketching and photography to document the pollution patterns. They also recorded their data in an AutoCAD model of the Cathedral. This project was part of a larger study being done for the National Park Service on Acid Deposition on Limestone Buildings. The project was also sponsored by the Engineering Design Research Center under the Green Design initiative."
