Abstract: Air pollution with high population growth, irregular urbanization, poor quality fuel consumption, rapid industrialization and the increase in the number of motor vehicles have brought significant environmental problems in recent years. The emission sources that cause air pollution are generally emissions from heating systems, motor vehicles and industry. When these emission sources are considered, the importance of air quality stations for monitoring pollutants was increased. Establishment of a basis for the determination of exposure to air pollutants, detection of pollutants in the settlement and industrial zones and development of an air quality action plan for this subject, determination of pollutant sources and risks, traffic management, temporal and spatial exposure, determination of long- air quality monitoring stations have an important place in order to be informed. Konya province is located in Central Anatolia region of Turkey. With the geographical structure of the province and the intense meteorological events in the winter months, the potential for air pollution increases. Konya city air pollution measurements are carried out automatically with fixed devices. Measurements are made on sulphur dioxide and particulate matter parameters. When the air pollution of the Konya City centre was examined, it was firstly analysed in the charts and tables by comparing the air quality limit values, which are accepted in the Regulation of Air Quality Protection, for the Long Term Limit Values (LTV), Short Term Limit Values (STV) and Winter Season Mean Limit Values will be processed and evaluated.
