Abstract

A wind tunnel investigation of carbon monoxide dispersal in the vicinity of the Sydney city monitoring site was carried out. A heat source was used instead of a tracer gas and measured temperatures predict CO levels at the sampling point. The results are in good agreement with city measurements and show that tower block construction in the vicinity of the monitoring site has greatly affected the recorded CO levels.
