REMOTE SENSING OF ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTANTS TO ASSESS ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF HIGHWAY PROJECTS (ABRIDGMENT)

The application is discussed of remote sensing instruments to highway and transportation environmental problems, and comments are made on its application to the validation and verification of mathematical and computer models of local and regional pollution and air-shed movements. Remote measure can include not only the nature and concentrations of the pollutant gases, but also the mass flow and the mass transport of pollutants from one area to another. The principles of correlation spectroscopy are set forth and two groups of instruments (Cospec and Gaspec) are detailed. In modeling transportation services in urban areas, several types of models may be used: synotic, climatalogical, and the grid-point model. The running of a grid-point model and the development of a fixed-source S02 model are discussed as well as the CO model.
