Abstract

A full scale dispersion experiment was carried out in Vienna, Austria, from June to November 1979 to investigate the effects of emissions from a 25 m urban parking garage on ambient carbon monoxide concentrations. A comparison of concentrations measured in the building cavity with those yielded by standard formulas from the literature is made.
