Abstract—Air pollutants, including PM2.5, SO2, NOX and CO,
were measured in Al-Hassan industrial estate (HIE) in Irbid
Governorate, 72 Km north of Amman. Data relating to
pollution in HIE has been collected from all sources that had
measured the level of pollution in this area during the period
from Nov.2010 to Nov.2011. The effects of local meteorological
conditions were studied by statistical analysis. The main results
of the study show that the gaseous pollutants levels monitored
were low and no exceedances to the Jordanian standards limit
of the ambient air no. 1140/2006 for NO2, SO2 and CO limits. It
has, indeed, shown that PM2.5 levels exceeded the daily limit
specified in the Jordanian Standards. This might be attributed
to the prevailing Khamasin winds, which become active in
spring, especially between April and May, in addition to the
high temperature and the low average of rainfall and the lack of
humidity, thus helping the increase of the suspended air in the
Index Terms—Air pollution, Al-Hassan industrial estate (HIE), concentration meteorological parameters PM2.5.
