Dispersion of a passive pollutant above urban areas in mountainous regions

Author(s): L.M. da Silva, S. Anquetin & J.-P. Chollet

Abstract:
Dispersion of a neutral tracer above a urban area in Grenoble (France) is studied with a large eddy simulation (LES) of atmospheric flows under con- ditions of steady wind.

The complex terrain with surrounding mountains is taken into account with a computational domain whose extension is 23Km x 25Km x 15Km.

The tracer is emitted from a non-buoyant point source and transported by a quasi steady wind coming from north west direction. The results are compared with data obtained from an experiment with a three hours steady release of SFe on June 15th, 1995.

A good agreement is observed for tracer dilution when comparing calculated and observed val- ues of CTA (Atmospheric Transfer Coef...
