Abstract

The objective of this study was to use the CALPUFF modeling system to predict the concentrations of CO, NOx and CO2 released, due to the traffic, from the Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) facility at its location in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. These pollutants were selected as the indicator since they were the most dominant products of vehicle emissions. The study focused on investigating the dispersion of CO, NOx and CO2 by considering the SQU as an area source. The results from the CALPUFF model clearly demonstrated that the levels of the three targeted pollutants, emitted from the vehicles, were found to significantly exceed the allowable limits defined by regulated standards.
