Modeling Air Pollution In Dong Nai Province, Vietnam

Full Text:


Data analysis shows that dust and CO have a very high concentration, causing air pollution. Meanwhile, SOand NO2 concentrations are lower than the permitted levels. The method inverse distance weighting (IDW) has been proved to be effective in modeling atmospheric pollution space in the study area. The results indicated that the air was contaminated. Pollution levels increase gradually in the following areas: Residential areas <Waste treatment areas <Industrial parks. The integrated pollution map shows that there have been signs of ecological insecurity in the dry season, so there should be measures to control the source of emissions into the environment.
