NEERI-Air quality dispersion modeling & data interpretation

Air pollution models are used for simulation of the transport and diffusion of various pollutants (SPM, S02, NOx, CO, etc.) being released into the atmosphere. The models are extensively applied in regulation and urban planning for impact assessment of existing or new sources, forecasting of pollution episodes, evaluation of control strategies, and design of air quality surveillance programs. This chapter focuses on types of Air quality models available, their applications, and the monitoring data interpretation.
