CONTEXT AND RELEVANCE
Atmospheric modeling is a fundamental tool to understand the dispersion, transformation and deposition processes of atmospheric pollutants. In addition, adequate implementation of air quality models enables a correct assessment of emission scenarios, a very useful input in the creation of strategies and policies aimed at reducing the impact generated by the different pollution sources in a specific area. Software used includes tools recognized by the main national and international environmental agencies (EEA, EPA, CETESB). Our work is always guided by current standards and laws.
