Abstract: Ambient air quality management in any industrial area is a prime concern in India. High concentrations of ambient sulfur dioxide (SO2 ) in many Indian places are responsible for non-compliance of ambient air quality standards. Dispersion modeling finds an important tool to simulate the ambient air quality of a region and to predict the ground level concentration of SO2 under various scenarios. National Thermal Power Plant Corporation in Dadri region (NTPC) is chosen in the present investigation for the application of a widely used industrial source complex – short term version 3 (ISCST3) model to predict the ground level concentration of SO2 . Objective of this study is to stimulate the dispersion modeling of SO2 emission from the coal-fired Thermal Power Plant.
