The paper describes the method of express-estimation of total power of the gas impurity emitted in the atmosphere by a group of continuous point sources. The method is based on the trace measurements of integral pollutant concentration and corresponding replacement of an actual group of sources by a virtual effective surface source, which encompasses the whole emission area. The Gaussian plume model is used to describe the atmospheric dispersion of each independent source. The relative error of the method is estimated depending on the dispersion between the emission power of individual sources, spatial configuration of sources within emitting area, turbulent state of the atmosphere, and effective height of emissions.
