    Description

    Relationships between the characteristics of the physical environment of a metropolitan area and the activities of its human inhabitants can be used to predict probable future dynamic trends, both demographic and environmental. Using simple linear regression, we were able to highlight several dynamic features of the metropolitan area of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Computer movies of the growth of Tulsa and attendant air-pollution problems were used for showing demographic and physical features simultaneously to facilitate the information-assimilation process so critical to planning.
