Air dispersion modeling has become one of the main tools in the study of air quality whereby it is a key element in most environmental impact assessments. Almost every human activity and natural process lead to some form of air pollution. Therefore, air dispersion modeling is a powerful technique to evaluate whether a source creates a problem. Considering climate change, sustainable design and planning of our cities are essential, but alpine regions and urban areas pose several problems to the correct investigation of air pollutant concentrations.
