ABSTRACT: The air pollution assessment based on concentration's changes of sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, benzene, and particulate matter is discussed in the chapter. The semi-Markov model of the environmental pollution process is introduced and its characteristics are determined. Next the proposed model is practically applied to examine and characterized air pollution in Gdańsk (Po-land) as the exemplary industrial agglomeration. The main parameters and characteristics of the air pollution process are determined, such as concentration states of particular kinds of air pollutants, the limit values of transient probabilities and the mean total sojourn times staying at the air pollutants' con-centration states, for the fixed time interval.

KEYWORDS: pollution, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, particular matter, semi-Markov process
