Dispersion of Light and Heavy Pollutants in Urban Scale Models: CO2 Laser Photoacoustic Studies

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


The distribution of pollutants in two urban scale models (point emission source and street canyon with extensive transport) was investigated by means of CO<sub>2</sub> laser photoacoustic spectroscopy in the region of the atmospheric window (9–10 μm). The experimental results of physical modeling are in a good agreement with the numerical calculations performed in the frame of computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modeling. Methanol, ethanol, and ozone (examples of light pollutants), as well as sulfur hexafluoride and 1,2 dichlorethane (examples of heavy pollutants), were selected on the basis of their high resolution spectra acquired by Fourier transform and laser diode spectroscopy.
