In this work, features of an arrangement and localization of the main sources of soot emissions on the territory of Krasnoyarsk city are considered. It is shown that under the conditions of the complex orography, the circumstances to forming high urban air pollution levels by dust, soot and black carbon are created. Thus, the stationary sources of Krasnoyarsk city throw out in air 129.8 thousand t of the polluting substances a year. Emissions from the largest enterprises amount to 91.9 % of total amount (47.2 % - RUSAL Krasnoyarsk OAO and 44.7 % - Heat Electropower Stations Nos. 1, 2, 3). The proportion of soot in the total amount of emissions amounts to 3 %. But despite this, features of the emission sources arrangement on the territory of the city can form a considerable human health risk level.

    Particulate matter (PM) emitted from cattle feedlots are thought to affect air quality in rural communities, yet little is known about factors controlling their emissions. The concentrations of PM(i.e., PM2.5,PM10, and total suspended particulates or TSP) upwind and downwind at two large cattle...
