Abstract

In this study, we examined the usage of the Gaussian air dispersion model to visualise point source pollutant concentration levels and implemented it in MASPLUME, a newly developed computer software which functioned as an estimation tool application for measuring the concentration level (at ground zero) of a selected pollutant dispersed from a single point source. The identified pollutants were carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and sulphur dioxide. MASPLUME was able to show a two-dimensional static air pollution dispersion and concentration level, as well as graphical data for different scenario analysis. Although MASPLUME is in its initial development stage as a comprehensive software, it would still be sufficient as a current teaching and learning aid.
