Air Quality Modelling
Atmospheric dispersion modelling
Although York has an above average number of air pollution 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, the council uses an air pollution dispersion model. The air pollution dispersion model used in York is called ADMS-Urban.
