Abstract

Mesoscale Flow and Pollutant Dispersion Modelling from Industrial Emissions at a Complex Mediterranean Site A contribution to subproject CAPMAN S. Finardi*, A. Marzorati\ A. Nannf, U Pellegrini* and G. Tinarelli* 'ENEL SfU - Area Ambiente, via Reggio Emilia 39, 20090 Segrate, Milan, Italy *ENVFTECHS.r.L, Cor so della Vittoria 2/F, 28100 Novara, Italy Introduction This work deals with the preliminary results carried out by a modelling system still under development which is capable of describing correctly the pollutant dispersion at a coastal site. This system is being applied to a NW Italian site along the Mediterranean coast (Fig. 1), where a thermal power plant is located near to the town of Savona and close to very complex orography. Complex flow structures characterised by periodic reversal of the wind direction originate here due to the mesoscale atmospheric circulation generat
