Abstract: The air pollution modelling system used in Tartu (population 101,000) is aimed at examining the pollution levels in different meteorological conditions, and determining optimal traffic schemes and strategic development plans for the city. The system consists of: (i) a Gaussian plume model AEROPOL, and (ii) a database on sources of NOx2

Keywords: AEROPOL model; air pollution modelling; air pollution monitoring; decision support system; industrial pollution; traffic pollution; urban air quality.
