Abstract

Aim of this paper is to study the air quality impacts due to the transfer of the Hellenikon airport to the region of Spata.

Mean monthly air pollutant concentrations (CO and NO%) are estimated with the Gaussian Model PAL, both for the "do nothing" scenario and the assumption of the airport in operation for the areas of Hellenikon and Spata. Results indicate that the installation of the new airport out of the Athens basin will improve the air quality in the basin. The operation of the Spata airport will lead to considerable air pollution levels in the area that will increase up to the year 2012. Nevertheless, the existing air q
