Abstract

Boubyan Island is the largest island in Kuwait. It is an underdeveloped area. In order to prepare a master plan with a long range of resource management policies, Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research is involved in carrying out Boubyan field verification research studies and providing input to the preparation of a master plan. An all-season passive air sampling system for sampling SO2, NOx, O3 and H2S in the atmosphere was used in the air pollution background study in the island. This paper details the study results.
