Abstract

Emissions from fugitive sources can be estimated from observed concentrations around an industry. The mathematical technique designed and calibrated for this application is a K-analytical diffusion model. The influence of buildings upon the nearby concentration field is also analysed, by a numerical two dimensional model for wind and concentration fields; this allows to locate monitoring stations to avoid these effects.
