Short summary
Wind power is known as one of the cleanest energies. However, wind farms can alter surface characters and meteorological conditions and can affect pollutant distribution around there. We reported an "edge effect" of air pollutants within and around a wind farm, higher concentrations of air pollutants in the adjacent upwind and border regions of a wind farm, and lower concentrations within and in the immediate downwind region. This will provide useful information for air quality forecasting.
