Abstract:

The report is intended as a guide on local air pollution for forecasters who have had no prior experience with diffusion. Certain fundamentals of micormeteorology and diffusion in the lower layers are expounded and their relatio to the determination of air pollutant dispersion and concentration amounts is explained. Calculations of pollutant concentrations using accepted techniques are systematically discussed and solution of actual air pollution problems are shown in the Appendix. Graphs and nomograms used in solving air pollution problems are also furnished in the Appendix.
