Abstract: Air pollution comes from low quality fossil fuels usage and/or used unsuitable technologies for production of energy. On the other hand, the natural factors such as temperature, atmospheric pressure, wind speed and directions, topographic structure, relative humidity, precipitation, and artificial factors such as disorder urbanisation and industrialisation, low quality fuels use, motor vehicle density, decreasing green area in city centres may effect air pollution. A computerised modelling method can be used for calculation of the air pollution dimensions. In this study, a computer programme was prepared for solution of the air pollution problems based on air pollution dispersion period and dispersion factors.
Designated pollutant factors in this modelling method are given below.
1. For dispersion period;
a) Uncontinuous source b) Continuous source
2. For pollutant type;
a) Point source b) Area source c) Line source
Modelling calculation and air pollution problems can be easily solved owing to prepared computer software based on above type of source, and calculation methods.

Keywords: Air pollution, Dispersion, Modelling, Pollution source type, Software.
