EVALUATION OF STREET-CANYON CARBON MONOXIDE-DISPERSION SIMULATION MODEL

A study is reported which determined the concentration of vehicle generated carbon monoxide at 6 major arterial roadways in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and reviewed current models that are used to analyze the air quality impacts of transport systems. The study also evaluated these models with regard to their ability to predict levels of vehicle-generated carbon monoxide in Saudi Arabia. The details of the study are given, and the data analysis is described. It was found that both the maximum 1-hour and 8-hour concentration levels frequently exceeded the SAAQS (Saudi Arabian Air Quality Standards) by a significant margin in all study locations. The structure of composite street canyon simulation models are dscribed and evaluated.
