Abstract

Growing concern about air quality in the Greater Madrid area has stimulated local authorities to undertake a series of investigations. Supplementing a long-term monitoring campaign with NO(2) diffusion tubes, a monitoring survey on the distribution of pollutants in the area took place in November 1990, when the meteorological conditions were expected to be favourable to an accumulation of pollutants released by fumes from traffic and domestic heating. Measurements were taken in different quarters of the city by a specially equipped mobile unit. This made it possible to obtain a detailed view of pollutant distribution, leading ultimately to the improved siting of monitoring stations within the network.
