Abstract

This paper focuses on the real time monitoring of dust level at different sources of a mechanised coal mine using DustTrak II and finally prediction of dust concentration at different locations of the mine and nearby areas using AERMOD view software. The paper summarizes the findings of dust measurement at different work places in different size range PM10, 4 micron, 2.5 micron and , 1 micron and using meteorological data and AERMOD software dust concentration around the mine were predicted. The predicted value of dust concentrations (PM10) were compared with NAAQS-2009 standard.
