TUTORIAL 1: INTRODUCTION TO AIR POLLUTION ENGINEERING AND
METEOROLOGY

1. Name 6 criteria air pollutants and gives their main effect to
human/property/vegetation.

2. Which atmospheric constituent absorbs most heat?
a. Carbon dioxide
b. Water vapour
c. Ozone
d. Nitrogen

3. The most unsettled layer of the atmosphere is the________________

4. What does large width and small depth of the atmosphere meant to its
motions?

5. Explain briefly factors affecting the atmospheric horizontal motions?

6. How does Coriolis force differ from gravitational and centrifugal force?
How does it affect the surface wind near the equator, at mid-latitude and
at the polar region in the idealized global circulation of the atmosphere?

7. What is the prevailing wind direction measured by a wind rose and
suggest the factor that usually governs the wind direction?

8. Draw the wind pattern based on the pressure-gradient.

What is the highest speed recorded at SSW? 10. How many times does the wind recorded at SSW? d. What is the highest wind speed recorded at NE? g. . Answer the questions related to the wind rose below: a.9. adiabatic and subadiabatic situations affect the stability of the atmosphere? Sketch a diagram of air parcel and lapse rate plot to help your explanation of each condition. How many times does the wind recorded at NE? f. 2V  sin  where V – Velocity of the moving body ω – Angular velocity of the earth or earth’s rate rotation Φ – Latitude 2 radians  day 11. Which area where high wind speed was recorded? b. How can any of these induce an inversion and fumigation? 12. Given.Sketch the onshore sea breezes in the day and offshore land breezes at night showing the wind direction. How many times does the wind recorded at north? e. Which area where low wind speed was recorded? c.Explain how superadiabatic.Calculate the magnitude of Coriolis acceleration for air moving at 60 kilometers per hour at 40o latitude.

Suggest the plume that could be observed under such atmospheric condition and its effect to the air pollutant. The adiabatic lapse rate (ALR) is -9. Based on the above information.A city is located in a valley. .Table below shows temperature and elevation data for a location. ii.28 322 15. suggest the prevailing wind direction in the city at day time and at night time.8oC/km. 14. The city also has a power plant near the shoreline.25 i. Elevation (m) Temperature (oC) 2 17. Show the temperature-elevation plot for the above Table and determine the stability of the atmosphere. which has mountains on the north and east sides and an ocean on the southwest of the city. 13.
