Abstract

Today, pollutant gases from vehicular traffic and industrial activities affect many people and have brought a lot of health problems. Having knowledge about how many people are exposed by which gas is very essential. So, the importance of air pollution prevention has been increasing in recent years, due to increasing knowledge of pollution sources and their pollution levels. The AERMOD view software estimates of concentrations depend on the availability and quality of meteorological observations, as well as the specifications of surface characteristics at the observing site. This model is able to simulate dispersion of gases emitted from all kinds of sources, such as point, line, and surface. In urban areas, we focus more on the point sources (i.e. industries) and line sources (i.e. streets).
