DAPPLE - Dispersion of Air Pollution and its Penetration into the Local Environment

DAPPLE is the generic name for a number of large urban meteorology and dispersion studies conducted by a consortium of UK universities. The first of these ran from 2002 until 2006 and was funded by the UK EPSRC Engineering for Health, Infrastructure and Environment Programme. The second was funded by the UK Home Office CBRN Research Programme and runs between 2006 and 2010. The field site for these projects was the area around the Marylebone Road and Gloucester Place intersection in Central London.

The final reports are available from the DAPPLE Outputs page as a single pdf.
