A method is developed whereby measured pollutant concentrations can be used in conjunction with a mathematical air quality model to estimate the full spatial and temporal concentration distributions of the pollutants over a given region. The method is based on the application of estimation theory to systems described by partial differential equations, such as the atmospheric diffusion equation. A computer code has been developed that can process monitoring data to produce concentration distribution estimates. The code has been tested extensively on a hypothetical airshed, designed to illustrate the key features of the method. Once concentration distributions have been estimated, new monitoring stations can be located based on several siting criteria.
