Abstract
There were many sources of air pollution as a result of urbanization, industrial, and population growth in the city of Najaf. This study included estimating the concentrations of some gases such as O2, O3, SiH4, SO2, NO2, NO, NH3, Co, H2S, and H2 with simultaneous measurement of weather conditions with the time of sampling during December 2012 and March, July 2013 in 22 selected sites in the city of Najaf. The particulate matter TSP and some trace elements such as Mn, Fe, Pb, Cd, Co, and Cu are measured. The results showed a clear contrast where recording some sites high pollution compared to recommended limits.
