Abstract
The major objectives of this investigation are: (1) to determine the time and space scales of the eddies generated by the traffic, (2) to study the effects of traffic-induced turbulence on the near-field dispersion of pollutants, (3) to evaluate several commonly used highway air pollution dispersion models, and (4) to improve methods of modeling pollutant dispersion near roadways. To this end, meteorological and tracer concentration data from two field experiments, namely, General Motors and New York State, are used.
