Abstract : The identification of the local distribution of detrimental or undesired impurities in the air and of the change of concentration with time can often not be accomplished, and is nearly always accompanied by a great expenditure of time and money. Appropriate are measurements from aircraft using qualified aircraft and measuring methods adapted to the particular purpose. The effects of the atmosphere on the propagation of noxious material are discussed. Particular reference is made to the possibilities to use indirect methods (remote sensing) enabling a systematic control of the environment by satellites. (Author)
