Abstract Title: Meteorological approaches for optimize air pollution management in Esfahan

Abstract: In recent decades, urban air pollution has been a big problem of industrial cities such as Esfahan. To have an air pollution incident, there are tree main factors that must occur simultaneously. There must be sources, a means of transport, and receptors. To management and control of urban air pollution it must be noted simultaneously to these tree factors. Sources of air pollution are either man made or natural. Man-made sources are what we may be able to affect some control of these sources. By transport, that we focus on the meteorological conditions, and the topography and climatology of a region, are important factors in dispersion. By forecasting of these conditions we can get preparation against crisis conditions. There are many industries in southwest of Esfahan that installed without any climatic condition studying. This causes precipitation of pollutant on the city and the people. Urban air pollution is because of growing up urban transportation, traffic and using fossil fuel for home heating. Also low pressure systems with low humidity that leads to dust and sand storm causes air pollution and low visibility. For decreasing of air pollution or do against crisis conditions must study these factors. In this article we study transport conditions and pollution potential variations along with approaching to urban air pollution management and doing against crisis conditions.
