Abstract

In the SANA programme unknown emission sources are inspected and emission rates of different gas releases are validated using FTIR- spectroscopy. Gaseous emission rates from industrial and agricultural areas, highways, garbage deposits, open-cast lignite minings, compost heaps and an ensemble of small-building smoke stacks are estimated. COj, ^O, CH*, NH), CO, NO, H2O, and HCHO are determined from measured absorption spectra in extended area plumes. Effluent concentrations such as CO, CO2, H%O, NO, N2O, NO2, SOz, and HC1 from smoke stacks and flares as well as temperature of plumes are quantified from measured emission spectra with the
