Paper Abstract

The transport of air pollution from local sources (industrial stacks) is connected with the motion of air masses. We report an investigation of the air quality in the region of Silistra (Bulgaria)-Kalarash (Romania), characterized by the possibility of transborder transfer of air pollutants. We applied a combined technique of lidar sounding and mapping of the aerosol field and conventional sampling of the contaminating harmful substances at stationary stations. The concentrations of pollutants above the limit value were measured. We identified and localized the unknown emission souce of the organochlorine compounds and proved the transborder origin of the pollution in the town of Silistra.
