The correlation with demographic parameters

  • Michel M. Benarie
Part of the Air Pollution Problems Series book series (AIRPP)


The basic box model given in equation 6.2 requires proportionality between pollutant concentration and the source strength per area unit. If the wind speed is averaged over a whole year or over an even longer period, this mean value is subject to only relatively slight changes. Hence equation 6.2 may be written
where QA is the source strength per area unit and ū is a long-term average of the wind speed.
