EMBABY, M.; MAYHOUB, A. B.; ESSA, K. S. M.  and  ETMAN, S.. Maximum ground level concentration of air pollutant. Atmósfera [online]. 2002, vol.15, n.3, pp.185-191. ISSN 0187-6236.

The ground level concentration of an air pollutant is obtained using the Gaussian plume model. However, the effective height H of the pollutant has been considered as a function of the ground level coordinates x and y. Extreme radius of the stack is developed. The constancy of H has been studied as a special case for the problem. Interesting arguments about both maximum and worst concentrations have been derived.

Keywords : Gaussian plume; stack; pollutant concentration.
