Air quality is very low in areas where industrial use and poor quality fuel use is high. Contaminants are transported from these regions by transportations. The flow of daily life is negatively affected both in the area where the source is located and in the surrounding regions. In this study, the effect of air pollution that is emitted from Dilovasi region how impact on Duzce, Bolu and Karabuk provinces is investigated by using HYSPLIT model. PM10, NO2, and CO values, which constitute problems for human health when exceeding the limit values, is evaluated for the period of 6 January 2017-12 February 2017. The data used belong to Marmara Clean Air Center Dilovasi station (Kocaeli- Dilovasi-IMES OBS1- MTHM).
