Abstract
An empirical diffusion equation is used with an estimated inventory of SO2 emissions for Nashville, Tennessee, to compute monthly mean SO2 concentrations. Results are compared with patterns of concentrations obtained from a network of lead peroxide candle measurements. Reasonable agreement is found between computed and observed values; topographic effects are also indicated. Relative monthly emission rates deduced from the comparisons are used to show the effect of space heating requirements.
