Abstract

Levels of SO2 in air samples from urban zone of Banja Luka were determined at locality Center in Banja Luka (administrative center of the Republic of Srpska, in Bosnia and Herzegovina) which is highly populated area, with intensive traffic and industry. Through experimental measuring, daily and weekend variation of SO2 concentration was determined. Daily variations are directly connected to regime and intensity of traffic and using fossil fuels. The paper presents measured average values of sulfur dioxide, together with max and min values and relationship between some parameters of air quality and meteorological parameters, i. e. for pollution modelling together with meteorological parameters.
