Smell is an important criterion of the quality of atmospheric air. The paper looks at quantitative and qualitative methods of odor assessment and describes the method of field olfactometry. Studies were carried out on the spread of odor from the WWTP OAO OKOS in the Kaliningrad region of Russia which resulted in 817 measurements. For each measurement, the following parameters were recorded: odor strength (D/T), odor character, atmospheric pressure (mmHg), temperature (°C), relative humidity (%), wind speed (m/s), wind direction and the the point where a measurement was taken. A mathematical model is given of the dependence of odor strength on the distance to two sources s1 (m) and s2 (m) and the wind direction from a straight line passing through a given point and a source 1 — a1 or a source 2 — a2.
