This paper considers optimization models for estimating the total strength of industrial emissions of pollution sources based on concentration measurements at the ground level or at a fixed altitude. The upper and lower limits of emission strength for individual sources, regions of characteristic pollution, typical meteorological conditions, and peculiarities of an observation system are the necessary additional data for solving inverse problems. Numerical experiments on estimation of the upper and lower limits of the hydrogen sulfide emission strength for different positions of the observation system under various meteorological conditions have been carried out by the example of an industrial area of the Barnaul Integrated Chemical Fiber Plant. Analysis of the results of numerical simulation has shown the satisfactory agreement of estimates with a given total emission strength under conditions of unstable atmospheric stratification.
