Although there are many research teams and software-companies which work in the area of chemicals dispersion in urban
terrain, the majority of them deals only with street canyons and industrial pollution, considering the city as an area with
Current research in the Laboratory conecentrates in the development of a finite-elements dispersion model,
capable of dealing with releases created in cities, whose full topography complexity will be taken into consideration.
Results will be validated in vitro, aiming to produce a user-friendly graphical package.
