Abstract

The study has come to the result that the monitoring site at the Electrical Training Centre (ETC) at Al-Hashimyeh town is exposed to grave pollution that goes beyond Jordanian standards of the ambient air. It has, indeed, shown that Sulfur dioxide (SO2) exceeds the limits and its seasonal concentration matches forward with the average wind speed. SO2 concentration reaches its lowest level in the early morning of the day and its highest level at the end of the day. The study has also pointed out that the levels of carbon oxides do not exceed the Jordanian standards of the ambient air and that the mathematical analysis indicators have pointed to the continuing increase of nitrogen oxides due to the increase of calm winds year after year. In fact, these winds do not help the dispersal and decrease of emissions; on the contrary, they increase the emissions concentration, especially in the areas approximate to the pollution sources.
