Determining NO2 immission levels in a confl icted area: Riobamba, Ecuador. Ri-obamba has areas with high vehicular infl u-ence. For the determination of nitrogen dioxide concentrations, passive samplers were used, which were placed at points throughout the do-main. The concentrations obtained in the fi eld were interpolated with the information gener-ated with the model traffi c emissions software, estimating the relationship between vehicular traffi c and the presence of gas. Allow to know the amount of pollutants that breathe about 250 pedestrians on average in the area.
