The paper aims at defining, on the basis of exclusively meteorological parameters, the different dispersive standard situations previously identified by experimental studies on the area of Bilbao (Spain). Both methods prove complementary stages and follow one another in time. Thus, a step forward is taken towards the methodological definition required to tackle air quality problems in air polluted areas. This last stage has sensed as a complement and development of the first one and has also genera
