Abstract

Remote sensing technique, mostly based on optical methods have been shown to provide a suitable approach to pollutant dispersion and transport problems while in the meantime they are a valid help in the assessment of air quality models. During the CEC campaign held in June 1981 in the Ghent industrial area, surveys have been made by mobile laboratories equipped with conventional and remote sensing instrumentation and the collected data have been elaborated in terms of pollutant mass flow across selected trajectories. Sulphur dioxide vertical burden and ground level concentration have been simulated by means of some already developed mathematical means based on gaussian or analytical solution of transport equation. The accuracy of predicted vs. measured values is discussed in connection with meteorological conditions and physical assumptions of the model. Such an analysis is a validation test for a more general application of the above-mentioned models.
