Many readers now are using microcomputers in their work. The advantages of these inexpensive and powerful tools are being recognized by both industry and universities. Microcomputers can be used in lengthy calculations, simulations, data collection and handling, and word processing.

Programming these computers can be done in numerous languages such as Basic, Fortran and Pascal. It is often possible to find commercial programs or software available to handle a given application. There are a growing number of programs published which are now in the public domain. Only a limited number of programs dealing with air pollution problems are available ready for use with a microcomputer.

This note describes a Basic program that uses the Gaussian Equation. It was written specifically for an Apple II Plus computer, but with minor modifications can be used with other microcomputers using Basic.
