You mention "volume" which is the crux of the problem: the surface mixing layer changes height throughout the day as solar heating influences the surface. Consider that the same emission rate can cause different concentrations at different heights and at different times of day and year. Meteorology drives all mixing and deposition, so whatever ...

The data that you are having are called emission fluxes. If these data are available as global averages then one can calculate global mean concentration by multiplying the residence time of the species with emission flux. However, at the city or grid level, it is not straightforward to calculate concentration from emission fluxes. In order to calculate, ...
