The validity of various assumptions underlying mathematical modeling of pollutant dispersion near at-grade highways was examined and the simulation capability of various dispersion models determined. The data base generated during the Long Island Dispersion Experiment is used to study the micro-meteorological characteristics adjacent to a highway and to evaluate four numerical and four Gaussian highway dispersion models.
