Paper Abstract

Strategies for the reduction of emissions of diffuse sources or measures for the stabilization of these inputs into atmosphere require monitoring techniques providing high quality data. Because in many cases these sources are difficult to access, an approach is considered combining optical remote sensing techniques for the estimation of path-integrated concentrations near sources with dispersion modeling. Different methods are considered and compared for this transport modeling. By these methods, measurement configurations can be found which are optimal in different aspects for estimating emission rates. Hence, measurements can be done matched to specific source configurations and the quality of these estimatiosn can be assessed.
