The paper presents the improved method of determining meteorological air pollution potential (MAPP) based on the use of surface meteorological data available for any weather station in Russia. Testing of the methods was performed on the data obtained from 196 weather stations in Western Siberia during the period 1986 to 2010. Boundary conditions to distinguish areas with different meteorological resources for dispersion of pollutants were specified. Interannual and territorial variability of MAPP was analyzed. Correlation coefficients were found between the MAPP values and the levels of air pollution with both separate ingredients and a pollution index as a whole (APS 4).
