Regulation over Space Dealing with spatial effect is a very real problem for pollution control Suppose there are 2 polluters and city located along a river The polluters are not equally located with respect to the populated area so their pollution will have different effects on the population To correctly regulate the polluters we must take into account their individual effects on the populated area (rather than just emissions)

Sources, receptors and transfer coefficients To take space into account we need to define: 1. Source : point of discharge of pollution 2. Receptor : point at which we care about the level of ambient pollution There is a relationship between emissions at sources (e 1 , e 2 ,…,e I ) and concentrations of pollution at a receptor j. If linear, it can be expressed as: P j = Σ i a ij e i where a ij is called the transfer coefficient Suppose a change in emissions from source i (Δe i ) results in a change in pollution
