The analysis identifies the impact of automobiles and mini-buses on air quality at the airport. Concentrations of Carbon Monoxide were estimated at seven receptors placed at critical locations in the terminal area. The Graphical Input Microcomputer Model was used in this screening analysis. The following assumptions were used in the analysis 1 vehicle activity maximum 2 wind speed 1 meter per second 3 wind directions 270 and 240 degrees 4 temperature 0 degrees F and 5 PasquillGifford stability class was D . The maximum one hour concentration at the most critical receptor was 26 mgm3. The one hour National Ambient Air Quality Standard for Carbon Monoxide is 40 mgm3.
