We present the results of a dispersion-modelling study of SO2 concentrations in Gebze, Turkey, Point and area sources were investigated and SO2 emissions were compiled, Emissions, meteorological and topographical data were loaded on the USEPA-approved ISCLT model to predict winter average SO2 contributions to the air quality over Gebze. The effects of fuel-change options on these contributions were investigated.
