The most significant accumulation of pollutants in the air occurs when increased levels of emission occur during meteorological conditions that are unfavorable for their dispersal. In this connection, it is necessary to forecast such conditions and take measures to prevent excessive emissions. The development of a forecasting method involves studying the meteorological factors that govern the significant accumulation of pollutants in the layer of air near the ground. This applies in particular to cities where industrial plants are located outside the residential area. On the basis of these relationships, operational meteorological monitoring of industrial plants has been started in some cities.
