Abstract/Summary A new mathematical model of pollutant plume dispersion in an urban environment is presented. The model uses parameters that explicitly take into account turbulent flow close to the ground and the urban canopy parameters enabling an analytic calculation of the plume concentration profiles and concentration fluctuations. Model predictions are compared with some recent experimental data, showing a close match. The model developed can be used as an analytical tool for predicting pollutant plume behaviour in complex urban environments, or as a prototype and performance check for a new generation of dispersion models.
