Abstract : Owing to the severe industrialization and urbanization many cities and its people are suffering from air pollution and its aftermath, analysis of the same is not done for many cities in full scale level. Air pollution modeling tools prevail to analyse the dispersion of air pollution considering various atmospheric parameters. In this work the analysis of quantum of air pollution and the dispersion of air pollution is done for two main monsoon period in Coimbatore (South west monsoon and North East monsoon). During the period of March to May owing to less moisture content wind movement will not be so rapid to ensure proper dispersion. A small comparison is made between two years plot to note the variation between these periods. Results shows the dispersion of pollutant owing to the monsoon variation, field data is not collected for the analysis and only secondary data available is used in this study.
