An investigation of atmospheric dispersion over complex terrain was carried out at the Brasimone Energy Research Centre where an experimental nuclear reactor is under construction. This is located in the Tuscan-Emilian Appennine range approximately 50 km south of Bologna. The measuring campaigns, based on survey of wind and temperature parameters, tracer { SF(6) } experiments and tracking of tetroons by radar, were performed with the purpose of assessing the atmospheric dispersion of pollutants under nocturnal drainage flow conditions. The three-dimensional MATHEW/ADPIC model was evaluated with the Brasimone data set and the results obtained were satisfactory.
