Abstract

Estimates of fluctuations in concentration resulting from multiple sources are complicated by the non-independence between the contributions to the concentration from each of the sources. Such fluctuations are important for toxic, inflammable and odorous releases and, with new standards for common air pollutants such as SO2 being introduced which are based on averaging times less than 1 hour, are becoming important for routine emissions too.
