Abstract. In large cities, one of the significant problems is air pollution, which can harm both the health of the population and the environment as a whole. At the same time, a person cannot always independently determine the risk assessment and take the necessary measures. Therefore, the main source of knowledge for the population is informing about the environmental situation and about observations of the processes and phenomena that occur in the external environment. The quality of monitoring and forecasting of emergency situations has a decisive influence on the effectiveness of activities in the field of reducing the risks of their occurrence and scale. The Volgograd region is a region with a developed diversified industry. Among industrial facilities, such industries as metallurgical, chemical, fuel and construction are characterized by the highest emissions. In addition, food and light industry enterprises, industrial and domestic boiler houses are located in the region, which also contribute to the overall level of air pollution in the atmosphere. In this regard, the purpose of the study is to conduct satellite monitoring of air quality in the industrial center of the Volgograd region – the city of Volgograd. The article presents the results of remote monitoring from February to April 2022, where the criteria for air pollutants were calculated. According to the calculations obtained, an assessment of the pollution of the selected industrial center of the Volgograd region was obtained. To assess the level of air pollution, both international and Russian indicators were used and the following conclusion was reached. The system, which is adopted in Russia and the CIS countries, allows for a comprehensive assessment of air pollution. Thus, pollutants are normalized both by MPC and by the air pollution index.

Key words: air quality, monitoring, pollution level, air quality index, air pollution index, pollutants.
