The air quality contribution from fossil fuel burning point sources was simulated from emission and air quality data in the vicinity of Tisza I, coal- and the Tisza II, oil-burning power plants. Air quality data were measured by a moving car with a meteorological tower to monitor the direction and speed of the wind, and the air temperature, and by a permanent station. The air quality measurements were performed for O3, CO2, SO2, NOx, and solid particles. A maximum point was found in time function of the SO2 concentration at noon, indicating that the measuring car was situated in the wind direction from the plant. The ambient concentrations depended on wind direction rather than the emitted stack gas concentration. The results of the transport model calculation were different for particles in class with the smallest and the biggest average diameter.
