This paper describes the research carried out to investigate air quality in Kuwait. It examined the results of several years of pollutants data provided by Kuwait Environment Public Authority. The data were obtained from a number of fix monitoring stations. The results of the time series analysis have shown that monitored exposures vary substantially and are unique to the location and temporal variation of the measured site (background, urban area, industry area and refinery area). Also, outdoor pollutant levels were governed more by the characteristics of traffic rather than level of flow and traffic.
