Statistical concepts and definitions Monitoring station: A facility for measuring emissions or concentrations of surrounding pollutants. Air pollutants: Any material that results in its discharge into the air environment in a direct or indirect way, whether voluntary or involuntary, to a change in its properties in a way that is harmful to humans, other living organisms, natural resources, or the air environment, harms the tourist areas, or interferes with other legitimate uses of the air environment. 1 Air quality standards (standards): levels of air pollutants stipulated in the regulations, which may not be exceeded during a specified period in a specific area. Sulfur dioxide (SO 2): a heavy, odorless, colorless gas released mainly as a result of combustion of fossil fuels, which is harmful to humans and plants, and contributes to acid rain. Nitrogen Dioxide (2 NO): a brownish-red gas that usually appears over urban areas and has an irritating odor, causing irritation to the lungs, with a negative environmental impact. Inhalable particles (size less than 10 microns or less than 2.5 microns): Fine liquid or solid particles such as dust, smoke, fog, fumes, or smog that are in the air as a result of combustion processes, industrial activities, or from natural sources. Ground Ozone (3 O): a colorless odorless gas, a decoration that contains three atoms of oxygen in each molecule. It is found as secondary pollutants in the lower atmosphere and other pollutants can enhance its formation.
