The phenomenon of air pollution is one of the results of industrial development, which is increasing day by day with the increase of population and expansion of urbanization, development of transportation and the amount of fuel. Today, air pollution has become a serious danger for many residents of large cities. The present research is theoretical-applied in terms of nature and descriptive-analytical in terms of study method. According to the subject under study and after extracting and collecting information and indicators by library method and analysis of satellite images and reviewing the time series of available information for the final analysis was obtained to identify the ecological footprint of air pollution. From mobile sources of IPCC Inventory Software 2018 to study periodic changes due to air pollution Diesel times were identified. The results show that the changes and the share of pollutants obtained in the base year in the four sections studied and especially in the carbon dioxide section during the study period have been associated with many changes as well as changes in urban green space (vegetation). Located in Region 2 of Tehran has caused instability of the environment in terms of air pollution so that out of a total of 49564092 square meters of land in Region 2 of Tehran only 2153728 square meters was allocated to vegetation (green) lands. Results of carbon production analysis in this region Showed that the trend of carbon production has increased from 43167344 kg in 2014 to 58925638 in 2018. In the car index, it has increased from 372189467 kg in 2014 to 497237450 kg in 2018.
