Air quality modelling

Although York has an above average number of air quality monitoring sites, it's still not possible to monitor air quality on all streets in the city.

To understand how pollution moves around the city, and how the weather and traffic flow influences it, we use an air 'pollution dispersion model'.

  • the dispersion model used in York is called ADMS-Urban
  • get information about the ADMS-Urban model via www.cerc.co.uk
