INTRODUCTION The prediction and management of air quality is increasingly gaining importance around the world. Its importance can only be expected to increase in the future as there is growing concern about the effects of air pollution on the earth's ecosystems. Air pollutants can be transported over long distances and across political boundaries. Through the mechanisms of long-range transport chemical species emitted into the atmosphere from urban and industrial centers can be distributed over large regions and as a result such widespread pollution problems as regional elevated oxidant levels, acid deposition, and visibility impairment can occur. The long range transport of air pollutants has been widely studied i
