Abstract

The main features that characterize the Athens Metropolitan Area (AMA) are its geographical position in the Attic Peninsula, the complicated topography and the neighboring industrial zone, located to the west and separated from the AMA by a hilly area. The possibility of air pollutants transport from this area to Athens has been the subject of a number of theoretical and experimental works in the past. In this paper using the meteorological and dispersion modeling system EZM, the vertical distribution of air pollutants, released from a number of stacks of various types and characteristics, and transported over Athens, was simulated and discussed. It was found that the vertical distribut
