Abstract
A simple method for estimating the gas emission flux by spot source fields based on IR laser measurements and atmospheric diffusion models is presented. The method is based on a proper arrangement of the optical links around the emission area, over which the determination of the gas integral concentration is required. The first objective of such measurements is to tune the parameters of a basic diffusion model in order to estimate, as second objective, the gas emission flux by applying the tuned model to experimental measurements. After discussing the proposed model and method, experimental data obtained from some CO2-rich natural discharges in Tuscany (Central Italy) are presented
