Abstract

The main source of air pollution in London is now road vehicle emissions. In addition to meteorological conditions, traffic volume is an important factor which influences the local air pollutant concentrations to which pedestrians and road users are exposed. This paper discusses the relationship of local meteorology, traffic volumes and roadside air quality. Data from the London Borough of Southwark's roadside monitoring station, situated at a major London route (A2), has been analyzed for traffic volumes and nitrogen oxides. Data sets for the months of February and March 1995 have been employed for this study. The data ana
