Abstract

In the framework of the ESTEEM Project co-financed by the European Commission, an urban dispersion model (ADMS) has been applied for two sites in Rome with high topographic and traffic regimes complexity, where two air pollution monitoring stations are located. The traffic emissions values have been provided by TEE (Traffic Emissions and Energy) model developed at ENEA and based on a 'correction' of emissions calculated from average speed with a 'Kinematics Correction Factor' (KCF) which represents the speed variabilit
