Abstract: The present paper presents a review of vehicular pollution dispersion models with particular focus on CALINE4 model. The CALINE4 model is one of the most extensively used model for prediction of vehicular pollution along highways/roads. The CALINE4 model is easy handing and less input data requirement makes it useful for screening purposes. The paper also briefly discusses about the performance evaluation, sensitivity analysis of CALINE4 model along with uncertainty due to limitations in terms of input data provided in CALINE4 model's output.
Keywords: vehicular pollution; dispersion models; CALINE4 model; performance evaluation; mixed traffic.
