International Conference on The Long-Term Environmental Effects of the Gulf War. , 1996/11/18.
Estimates of various types of pollutants in the terrestrial environment as a result of Kuwaiti oil fires are presented in this paper.
The impacts of pollutants on the marine environment and human health are also briefly discussed.
A comparative evaluation of air quality during and after the Gulf War, based on the data compiled on gaseous pollutants and particulate matter concentration at various locations within Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, is also presented.
The analysis shows that the concentration of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter during the oil fires in 1991 was much higher than in 1993.
