Modeling simulation of wind flow in the Valle de Mexico, changing topographic structure G. Sosa, R. Aguirre* Gerencia de Energeticos Alternos y Quimica Ambiental, Instituto Mexicano del Petroleo, Eje Central Ldzaro CWenoa J&g, Mezs'co D.F., 07730, Mezs'co *Posgrado de Ingenieria UN AM, Apdo Postal 70-256, D.F., ABSTRACT The three-dimensional meteorological model HOTMAC is applied to evaluate the impact on air quality condition, when topographic structure modifications are proposed in an attempt to solve Mexico city pollution problem. Changes in the local atmospheric circulation are analyzed by calculating three different cases: the circulation regime for the actual topography, and the resulting flows for two different modifications on the southwestern mountains of the city (Ajusco zone) . INTRODUCTION Mexico City's air pollution problem has recently
