Environmental concentration of a pollutant, resulting from a combination of immissions and dispersals; often synonymous with exposure.

data describing the receptors considered (the number of receptors to pollutant immission concentration taken into account, the height of placement of every receptor considered, landmark coordinates to a fixed point, the nature of land);
It was necessary to correctly evaluate the total contribution of a specific pollutant, emitted by the group of sources with this characteristic and to establish the contribution of every source generating a certain type of pollutant, to "show" the total impact of that pollutants concentration at immission, determined in precisely set receiver points.
Immission standards are based on noise quality criteria or guideline values for noise exposure to be applied to specific locations and are generally built into planning procedures (Kaklauskas et al.
2008; Szucs 2009; Tanczos, Torok 2008; Griskeviciute-Geciene 2010) are one of the means of putting immission regulations into practice.
To determine the immissions, samples were taken at the limit iron casting chamber.
These zones and the selection are illustrated in Figure 2, where the immission concentration band borders are used to demarcate the three zones.
The OML, a commercial product (Danish Environmental Protection Agency 1997), is used widely by environmental regulatory bodies in Denmark to assess immission values of airborne pollutants.
