AIR POLLUTION RESEARCH

QUANTITIATIVE AND QUALITATIVE INFORMATION ABOUT THE NATURE AND PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS OF PARTICLES IN THE AIR CAN THEORETICALLY BE DETERMINED FROM AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS. BOTH VERTICAL AND OBLIQUE PHOTOGRAPHS OF A POLLUTED AIR MASS ARE USEFUL FOR PRODUCING A TOPOGRAPHIC-TYPE MAP WHOSE ACCURACY IS ACCEPTABLE FOR AN AIR POLLUTION SURVEY. A QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS OF A POLLUTED AIR MASS COULD RESULT IN A PHOTOGRAMMETRIC DETERMINATION OF THE EXTINCTION COEFFICIENT FROM WHICH THE CONCENTRATION OF THE POLLUTANT CAN BE OBTAINED. DATA CAN BE DEVELOPED FURTHER TO GIVE A YEAR AROUND DISTRIBUTION OF POLLUTANT. /AUTHOR/
