The potential effects of Shuaiba industrial area (SIA) NOX plumes on photochemical smog concentrations was assessed using the integrated empirical rate-reactive plume model. The model is a combination of the conventional dispersion model and the integrated empirical rate (IER) mechanism of photochemical smog formation. It was found that the SIA NOX plume has clear impact and results in new smog production.
