The adjoint method is effectively applied for identifying a location of the pollutant source in water or air pollution problems. Using the relation between solutions of main (forward) and adjoint (backward) problems, the estimation of pollutant source parameters is defined quite simply. In the paper, we shall utilize the adjoint method for identifying a location source and pollutant power of the stationary atmospheric pollution point source problem. The proposed method is so simple that the pollutant concentration measuring at three points is enough to define unknown parameters. Some numerical examples are presented for illustrating the effectiveness of the method.
