Abstract

An emission model was developed on the basis of a "bottom-up" methodology to estimate hourly traffic emissions in the Greater Madrid Area Madrid in 1992. The geographical distributions of the emissions of several compounds are shown. This information can be used to evaluate the relative contribution to the total emission from this specific source with the final purpose being to feed a dispersion model for photochemical pollution. Introduction Spatially and temporally disaggregated emission inventories are needed for an effective air pollution management. Only if air pollution sources are located and their contributions to overall pollution levels determined will the introduction of control actions be productive. The relative im
