This paper discusses the application, on yearly basis, of a hybrid modelling system able to reconstruct urban air quality, with specific attention to road transport and domestic heating.

This study aims at reconstructing the spatial variability of concentration levels of pollutants within Milan urban area by means of an integrated urban air quality hybrid modelling system (HMS) that integrates a Chemical and Transport Model (CTM) and a Local Scale Model (LSM). The Comprehensive Air Quality Models (CAMx) (ENVIRON, 2011) was the eulerian CTM model applied to consider chemical reactions and physical phenomena at basin scale; AUSTAL2000 (Janicke Consulting, 2002) was the lagrangian LSM model applied to compute dispersion of pollutants at the urban local scale. The HMS provided a detailed spatial reconstruction of pollutant concentrations that can be used to properly assess exposition levels within the urban area.
