An aerial view of Marylebone Road, London, receiving pollutant contamination from a source in a street two blocks west. Colours represent pollutant concentration levels at pedestrian height.

As part of the NERC’s National Centre for Atmospheric Science, we are continuing on the modeling of wind flows around buildings and through streets, and the consequent dispersion of pollutants and heat transfer.
In collaboration with CD-adapco, one of the ‘big three’ CFD code vendors.
