Laser Remote Sensing of Sulfur Dioxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, Toluene, Ozone, and Dust in the Industrial Area of Cubatão (Brazil)

Conference paper


Measurements of temporal and spatial distributions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, toluene, and aerosols have been made with two lidars in the industrial region of Cubatão, Brazl. Immissions, emissions and transport phenomena were investigated. The data provide a comprehensive picture of the actual situation and appear useful for future planning of new facilities in the area.
