The paper deals with the issues of information system for monitoring and assessing the ecological situation in an industrial region, based on the mathematical modelling of atmospheric pollution. Our model allows collecting live data and evaluating the possibility of pollution spread. The research object is the air composition changes that occurred under the natural and anthropegenus factors. The purpose of our research is to design an information system software for monitoring and assessing the ecological situation in an industrial region. A mathematical model, based on the hydro-thermodynamics equations, is applied to study the local atmospheric processes that occur in the boundary layer. The following were taken as original equations: equation of motion, continuity equation, heat flow equation and the equation of specific humidity. A modular software system was designed to implement the herein investigated methods and algorithms of solving the problem of the boundary and surface layers and the transfer of impurities.
